Monday morning, Northview high school senior Lexie Lee learned she is the recipient of a $1,000 Sandra Griggs Nursing Scholarship and a $1,200 Willie Griggs Technical Scholarship.
Both will help Lee pursue her dream of attending nursing school next year at Troy University.
The scholarship money will also send her to a pre-med summer camp before that.
Lee is thrilled, but says this is just the beginning.
She is going to keep applying for other scholarships.
Presenter Cassandra Griggs-Frierson is originally from Dothan.
Griggs-Frierson says she and her brother formed the scholarship in honor of her mother, a former nurse Preceptor at Flowers Hospital who retired in 2012.
The family says they plan on doing this every year for students like Lee.
