NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee State University President Glenda Baskin Glover is awarding $3 million in scholarships to high school seniors in West Tennessee and northern Mississippi.

Glover is expected to present the scholarships to students at a special reception on Wednesday in Memphis, her hometown.

TSU's office of admissions and recruitment worked closely with them to identify high-achieving students based on grade point average and ACT/SAT test scores.
