Downtown on the Farm raised $4,000 for scholarships at MTSU

Downtown on the Farm, presented by Locally Owned Murfreesboro, raised $4,000 for a scholarship in MTSU’s Jones College of Business.

“We are grateful for all of our supporters who came out for the dinner,” said Michelle Willard, vice president of Locally Owned Murfreesboro. “You have made and will continue to make Murfreesboro such a wonderful city.”

The funds raised were donated to MTSU’s Jones College of Business for scholarships in the Entrepreneurship Program.

“Locally Owned Murfreesboro understands the potential of MTSU students to become entrepreneurs in their hometown,” said Carolyn B. Tumbleson, development director of Jones College of Business.

“By providing these scholarships, the organization’s members encourage student innovation and entrepreneurship,” Tumbleson added. At Jones College of Business students receive quality technical and soft-skills training to be prepared for a career in corporate innovation or entrepreneurship.”

The scholarship fund was established last year with a $500 donation from LOM member businesses. That donation resulted in a single $500 scholarship being awarded in April 2019. “Because of the success of Downtown on the Farm, we were able to expand the scholarships that will be awarded this spring,” Willard said.

This year the Locally Owned Murfreesboro Scholarship will give $1,000 to four qualifying students.

The scholarships will be awarded to students majoring or minoring in entrepreneurship, who are of financial need and graduated from a Rutherford County high school.

The recipient will be selected by professors from Jones College, which will be awarded in April.
