SEKRI Donates $10,000 Scholarship to University of the Cumberlands

 


President Jim Taylor accepts the generous donation from SEKRI representative Norman Bradley.

Williamsburg, Ky. - University of the Cumberlands recently received four $2,500 scholarships from Southeastern Kentucky Rehabilitation Industries (SEKRI) to help further the education of local students.

Last year, SEKRI donated $10,000 to the university and feels that giving scholarship money is one of its main priorities.

"We have always said that when we are able, we are going to give scholarship money," said Norm Bradley, a SEKRI representative. "It's our way of giving back to the community."

SEKRI is a non-profit organization located in Corbin, Ky., whose primary purpose is "to provide qualified personnel, facilities and related services for persons with disabilities, enabling them to obtain and to be successful in maintaining competitive employment."

University of the Cumberlands, located in Williamsburg, Kentucky, is a private liberal arts college in its 117th year of operation. Cumberlands offers four undergraduate degrees in 37 major fields of study, 30 minors and 9 pre-professional programs, as well as online and accelerated, non-traditional programs for adults.
