Established in 2015

Eligibility: Students eligible are seniors at Macon County High School who have demonstrated participation in visual and performing arts during their high school years.

The J. Y. Carter Excellence in the Arts Scholarship Fund was established in memory of J. Y. Carter, a long-time teacher at Macon County High School. His love of the performing arts led his family to create this scholarship to encourage young people who have participated in the performing arts in high school to pursue the college/university experience.
