The recipient of the 2022-2023 Maggie Crosby Tetrick Diversity in Leadership Scholarship is Rosie Granados, a new graduate of Elizabethton High School (EHS). Rosie is the daughter of Victor Granados and Rosalba Brito. She has two very special sisters, Stephanie and Abigail, who supported her academic efforts, as well. Rosie demonstrated academic excellence and a passion for healthcare during her time at EHS. Rosie focused her sights on obtaining industry credits through her coursework at EHS which allowed her to become a licensed Certified Nursing Assistant. She maintained a rigorous course of science and healthcare classes on top of her traditional required 12th-grade courses. Rosie did this all while maintaining an impressive academic GPA. Throughout her time at EHS, Rosie held herself to the highest academic standards and demonstrated a willingness to go above and beyond in all she did, according to her instructors. Rosie is much loved by her academic mentors and came highly recommended by her HOSA instructor, Lauren Meier.

Rosie has a passion for volunteering at her church, St. Mary’s Catholic Church, supporting efforts to care for the homeless in our area and serving meals to those in need. For fun, Rosie enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She plans to attend ETSU in the fall.

The Maggie Crosby Tetrick Diversity in Leadership Scholarship was established to honor and recognize children of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, particularly historically underrepresented students who have demonstrated academic integrity and strong leadership skills. Students must also be recommended by a teacher and/or academic advisor as a student who demonstrates excellency in all academic aspects.
