Haley Hinshaw of Hillsboro was recently awarded the Rachel Gamble Memorial Scholarship through the Motlow College Foundation. The scholarship was established earlier this year in memory of Rachel Gamble, a former Motlow student and softball player who passed away in April after a brief illness. A friend of the family, Jan Gilliland, along with Rachel’s parents, Susan and Mike Gamble, is providing the scholarship. Rachel was from Chattanooga where she was an outstanding softball player in high school, making all-conference three times. She brought her athletic talents to Motlow and played on Motlow’s softball team for two years. Each year for the next five years, the scholarship will go to the Motlow softball player who best embodies Rachel’s spirit of helpfulness, encouragement, loving kindness, team spirit, teach-ability and her love for life.
