Warren County's Andrews receives full-ride scholarship
By Brian Bowden

A standout on the basketball court as well as in the classroom, Warren County High School senior Raneisha Andrews inked her signature on paperwork Friday afternoon that secured her a full-ride basketball scholarship coupled with an academic scholarship to Spring Hill College in Mobile, Ala.
"When I first got offered a scholarship I was excited, I was surprised and most of all I felt extremely blessed," said Andrews. "Because it had always been my dream to have a full scholarship."
The starting point guard, and valedictorian of her senior class at WCHS, started playing basketball in the fourth grade. However, Andrews started excelling in the classroom long before that. "She started at an early age and we set goals for her, academic-wise. We encouraged her to always be on honor roll," said her father Robert Andrews. "That was one of her conditions to be able to play sports. That just carried over each year and I thank God that she is the valedictorian of the school."
Andrews also holds a 4.0 grade point average. "She really shows what it means to be a student athlete, especially by her being the valedictorian," said WCHS Girl's Basketball Head Coach Chris Harris. "I think she really sets the example for all athletes to see that, yes, although she's first in the gym and last to leave, she also has a 4.0 GPA."
