Two Oakland High School graduates each earned $750 scholarships funded from donations by Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office’s school resource officers.

Marybeth Arnett won the scholarship for the vocational or community college and Kristen Gerecke won for the university scholarship. Both Arnett and Gerecke plan to be school teachers.

Sheriff Robert Arnold presented the award to the students.

“These young women deserve this scholarship,” Sheriff Arnold said. “They plan to use their scholarships in their goal to teach the children of our future.”

Arnett will play softball for Martin Methodist College in Pulaski while Gerecke will attend the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

Gerecke and Arnett were chosen to receive the scholarships based on their grade point average, leadership, an essay they wrote about “What Law Enforcement Means to Me” and references. Arnett’s grade point average was 3.6 while Gerecke’s was 3.987 with honors.

Arnett played softball for Oakland four years, serving as the senior team captain. She is a member of the National Honor Society, FCCLA and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She will serve as an ambassador for Martin Methodist College.

Gerecke is a member of the National Honor Society, Muh Alpha Theta, FTA, FBLA, DECA and Big Brother and Big Sisters.
