Kassey Wagner awarded Kara Berry Memorial Scholarship

In May, the Greenbrier County Schools Foundation awarded the Kara Berry Memorial Scholarship to Greenbrier East High School cheerleader Kassey Wagner. Wagner plans to enroll at West Virginia Wesleyan this fall and major in nursing. She has also been awarded a scholarship from the school to run track.
This scholarship was started in 2008 in memory of Kara Berry, a former Greenbrier East High School cheerleader who tragically died in an automobile accident soon after graduation that year. This scholarship is awarded to a senior cheerleader who will be attending a college or vocational school, and who demonstrates outstanding leadership and service at the high school. Wagner is the seventh recipient of this award.
The Greenbrier County Schools Foundation would like to thank the cheerleading program at Greenbrier East for funding this scholarship and selecting Wagner to carry on the values and memory of Kara Berry.
