Toccoa Falls, Ga. (November 13, 2023) — Each year, Toccoa Falls College hosts a special two-day event for high school seniors and their families. At Future Scholars, prospective students are able to tour campus, connect with current students and professors, stay in the residence halls, attend community worship, and get a sneak peek into life as a student. While experiencing the many things that make TFC special, prospective students also participate in a series of activities and interviews that are based on character, leadership, and academic excellence. Following the event, one student is awarded a four year, full ride scholarship to Toccoa Falls College. We are pleased to announce that the 2023 Future Scholar is Shaelie Wiggins!

Shaelie is from Fruita, Colorado and she intends to major in Nursing while at TFC. She expressed that, “Beyond college graduation, I hope to use my nursing degree on the mission field. I’m open to whatever God has for me, but definitely feel called to use my unique gifting’s and medical training in an overseas context.”

When Shaelie received the call notifying and congratulating her of this well-deserved award, she voiced how honored she was to accept the scholarship and attend TFC in the fall of 2024,

“I am honored and humbled to receive this award. There were so many other amazing people I met during the Future Scholars weekend who embody so much of what TFC stands for. To have this recognition makes me feel so blessed and I’m praising God for His provision. I am most looking forward to being surrounded by the community and beauty of TFC. I could genuinely sense God’s presence on the campus and shining through the staff and students there and I’m excited to come along side of them to grow in Jesus together.”

TFC is excited to welcome Shaelie and many more Future Scholars attendees to our community next fall!
