HIXSON, TN (WRCB)-  Hixson High senior Jenny Hua received a surprise visit  Christian Miller, Associate Director of Admissions from Queens University in Charlotte announcing her award of the Presidential Scholarship.  Jenny's father Tai Hua was joined by Hixson principal Lee Sims, PEF College Advisor Helen Richard, County Commissioner Marty Haynes and School Board representative Greg Martin for the surprise ceremony.

To receive this award, Jenny had to submit an essay to the scholarship committee and participate in two interviews (a group interview as well as an individual interview). During this time the scholarship committee reviewed her ability to discuss current topics, how she worked with others who had differing opinions, and her ability to articulate her beliefs; while also being evaluated on her academic performance throughout high school.   

The Presidential scholarship is the highest award a student can receive at Queens. With this scholarship she will receive over $120,000 in scholarship monies, and a trip abroad.  Past and current Scholarship recipients have been given the chance to interview Secretaries of State, Presidential Candidates and high-profile CEO's. She will be considered the face of Queens and held to the highest regard by accepting this award.
