Karol Francisco and Gladiz Romano have been awarded the Pedro Arias Memorial-Sumner Hispanic Alliance scholarship for 2010. The Volunteer State Community College students will receive $500 each to cover books or expenses in the coming year. Pedro Arias was a much-respected member of the Sumner County Hispanic Alliance who died in a car accident last year. Funds for the scholarship are raised through local donors and sponsors of the Fall Fiesta at Vol State.
