The Lowell Hill, Virginia Wilson Hill and Pegine Hill Memorial Scholarship Fund was created in 2022 by Virginia Tameron Hedge to honor the legacy of her grandparents, Lowell & Virginia (Wilson) Hill and her mother, Pegine Hill. Virginia Wilson Hill was a lifelong teacher. Subsequently, her diverse interests meant she was forever a student as well, who always said that an education is one thing no one can ever take away from you.
Along with Tameron’s grandfather and mother, they each brought a unique magic into the world through education, community service, music, the fine arts and historic preservation. Continuing the pursuit of these lifelong passions informs the intention of this scholarship. It is Tameron and her family’s way of continuing to honor and love the community that has been their home for over 150 years.
This fund is a renewable scholarship that will be awarded annually to a Middle Tennessee student, specifically the 40 counties served by the CFMT, with a preference given to students from Bedford or Williamson County.
Applicants will be pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree and majoring in education, theology, music, film, historic preservation/public history, or the fine arts. Applicants will need to be well-rounded and in good academic standing demonstrated by a minimum of a 3.0 GPA. Applicants must demonstrate financial need in their application and will be the primary factor for the committee to consider.
