Thomas Colburn, a senior at Oak Ridge High School, was recently awarded the AF Bridges State Award of Excellence scholarship.
This $1,000 college scholarship is given annually to a senior student-athlete who best exemplifies the high ideals, ethics, integrity, citizenship and sportsmanship of the TSSAA (Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association).
Colburn is a member of the Oak Ridge Wildcats cross country and track and field teams, and he also was a finalist in an Intel science competition after a two-year project conducted with help from an Oak Ridge National Laboratory mentor.
