Scott Bateman Memorial Scholarship Awarded

Harrison Davis was recently awarded the Scott Bateman Memorial Scholarship presented by the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Regions Bank.

Harrison was very thankful to receive the scholarship, as he will be attending Mississippi State University this Fall. Something Harrison shared in his essay for the scholarship really stood out, “In a business or community, there must be involvement, leadership, and good work ethic to be successful.” Well Harrison, we think you fit the mold. Scott Bateman would be honored to know that you received the scholarship this year, and, of course, he would give you a big ‘Hail State’!

Scott was an outstanding leader in the Fort Payne community and served on the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for ten years. He worked at Regions Bank in Fort Payne for thirty-five years. Scott was also a Mississippi State graduate and loved the DAWGS.

Vickie Bateman, Scott Bateman’s widow, along with Jennifer McCurdy, Executive Director of the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce presented Harrison with the Scott Bateman Memorial Scholarship.
