A group of concerned Cheatham County citizens was looking for a way to serve current and future generations. Based on their sense of county priorities, they opted to create a Scholarship Fund that supports not only the “A” student, but also the “B” and “C” students.


“The Cheatham County Community Foundation hosted a reception for their 2023 recipients. At the reception, the board members gave the awardees yard signs to celebrate their college choice & scholarship award.”
