LOUISA — A Lawrence County student has been inducted into University of Kentucky's Robinson Scholars Program in Hazard.
Jeconiah Tai Staniford, son of James and Marcella Staniford of Martha, was inducted during ceremonies at Hazard Community College.
The Robinson Scholars Program provides full college tuition, room and board, and books during the college careers of students who otherwise would be financially unable to pursue a degree.
Students must maintain an acceptable grade point average and graduate from high school to receive their scholarships. Each scholarship carries a $9,000 present-day value.
The program is open to eighth graders from 29 Eastern Kentucky counties. Selection is based on each student's academic potential, essays and interviews.
It is also required that parents of the selected students have not attained a college degree.
