By JOYANNA LOVE/ Managing Editor

Anna Grace Baker has been named the 2021 recipient of the Judy Melton Mims Memorial Endowed Scholarship.

She is a 2021 graduate of Chilton County High School.

The scholarship was presented by Troy Mims on behalf of his family and the Chilton County chapter of The University of Alabama Alumni Association.

Mims said the scholarship was created in memory of his wife in 2008 and is awarded on an annual basis to an University of Alabama incoming freshman who is a graduate from a Chilton County Schools high school. The amount of the scholarship varies each year, but is usually between $1,000-$2,000.

The university supplies a list of students to the scholarship committee, for which Mims serves as chairman.

The scholarship is awarded based on academic achievement, need, extracurricular activities and community involvement.
