Margaret Pond, a paraprofessional working in the Metro Nashville Public Schools, was pleasantly surprised to say the least to find out that her son Addison was the winner of a $10,000 scholarship from Local 205.
Addison is beginning his senior year at Christian Brothers University in Memphis where he is pursuing a degree in Sports Management. He was a public school student in Metro and graduated with honors from Hume-Fogg magnet school.
In addition to participating in a work study job in his college’s sports information office, Addison interned over the summer in the Vanderbilt University athletic department. He has a 3.8 GPA and has made the Dean’s List every semester he’s been in college.
The $10,000 scholarship was a one-time special gift from Branstetter, Stranch & Jennings, a labor law firm based in Nashville.
