Two Tennessee Technological University students from Roane County were among the honorees during the 35th annual College of Business Scholarships and Awards Banquet at the Cookeville university.
Faculty, business alumni, scholarship donors, scholarship recipients and their families attended the banquet where 123 students received almost $133,000 in scholarships.  
“We are proud of this outstanding group of students,” said James Jordan-Wagner, dean of the College of Business.
Sophomore Katherine Antone of Rockwood was awarded the Institutional Wholesale Co. scholarship, endowed by Jimmy and LeRoy Mackie.
She is a basic business major.
Finance major James Munsey of Kingston received the Dr. Norman C. Williams Jr. Memorial Scholarship.
He is a senior at Tennessee Tech.
“We are also extremely pleased with the support we receive from businesses and alumni in supplying the private funds for scholarships,” said Jordan-Wagner. “In trying times, they have responded by increasing the amount that we could award this year. These awards help us attract high-quality students to the college and the university.”
The College of Business and its accounting program are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, making it among the fewer than 5 percent of business programs worldwide with this distinction.
Thirty honor students (those maintaining a 4.0 grade-point average) were acknowledged for their scholastic achievements.
