Watkins will use the scholarship funds for tuition and fees, the radiology registry exam, and other educational expenses that lead to graduation and advance her career, explained Tanner.
Watkins’ award was made possible by The Monroe Foundation. OTC Foundation Chair, Larry Paulk, and OTC Foundation trustees congratulate Jordan Watkins and thank the Monroe family for their generous donations which funded this scholarship and numerous others.
