SOMERSET – Cas Biance McGuffey, of Stanford, was awarded an Academic Achievement Award to attend Somerset Community College for the Fall 2016 semester, which he completed in December.
The SCC Academic Achievement Scholarship is a scholarship granted the top ten percent of select area high schools. It is valued at a fifty percent reduction of SCC tuition for up to fifteen credit hours. The scholarship may be received up to four semesters.
McGuffey is a 2016 graduate of Lincoln County High School where he held a 3.8 grade point average. He is currently planning to major in Biology and transfer to the University of Kentucky in 2018 to become a field biologist.
“I will get my Ph.D. in biology so I can eventually become a professor at a university,” said McGuffey. “I have always had a passion for the study of animals, and I wish to pursue it my entire life.”
McGuffey is also an artist, having art receptions in the SCC East End Gallery. His work has also been displayed at the Shine House in Somerset.
McGuffey is the son of Anita Rose McGuffey and Jeffery Watkins McGuffey of Stanford.
