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.
