This Scholarship Fund honors the giving nature and loving heart of Katie Rose, a lifelong resident of Rutherford County, who attended Middle Tennessee Christian School, Riverdale High School and MTSU. A competitive cheerleader, and loving daughter, adorable little sister, and friend to everyone, Katie had an insatiable work ethic and determination that made all things seem possible. Her dream to become a professional hair stylist and eventually own her own salons was cut short after a tragic automobile accident two weeks into her cosmetology training.
