Peyton Manning Recognizes Four Exceptional Students
Peyton Manning returned to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, to recognize the 2018 Peyton Manning Scholars. Since the endowment was created in 1998, 37 students have benefited from the scholarship.
“I always look forward to this event and the opportunity to recognize and reward such exceptional and deserving students,” said Manning. “I am very proud of the growth of this scholarship program and for the resources to help provide many of the same opportunities and chances that I had.”
The Peyton Manning scholarship is awarded annually to first-year students in UT’s Haslam Scholars Program, an initiative that attracts some of the brightest students from across the country. The scholarship is granted to students who demonstrate strong academic achievement, leadership, and community service.
The recipients this year include Ford Brewer, an English major from Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tennessee; Keri Burge, a biological sciences major from Pope John Paul II Catholic High School in Huntsville, Alabama; Kyler Groner, a political science major from Morristown-Hamblen High School in Morristown, Tennessee; and Deanna Riley, a chemical engineering major from Summit High School in Spring Hill, Tennessee.
