Rising college student receives Adam Ward scholarship

By  | 

SALEM, Va. A Salem High School student received a scholarship named in honor of our beloved coworker, Adam Ward.

Jake Barnett received the Adam Ward Endowment from the Salem Educational Foundation.

It was established by Adam's friends and family. He was a 2007 Salem High graduate.

Barnett knew Adam and says he's honored to receive the scholarship.

"We went to Tech games with him and we actually tailgated with him a lot at the Tech games and we had a pretty good time," said Barnett. "He was a great guy so I think it's really nice that I'm having this opportunity. I'm really grateful for this."

Barnett plans to attend Liberty University in the Fall.
