Chemical Lime Company awarded three Tom Chambers Scholarships to graduating high school seniors during a luncheon at the University of Montevallo April 29.

Danielle Turek of Thompson High School, Kyndall Reynolds of West Blocton High School and Elizabeth Killingsworth of Calera High School were recognized for their moral integrity, work ethic and articulated career goals.

The scholarships, which are named for Chemical Lime’s founder and former chief executive officer, may be awarded for eight semesters, $1,000 per semester, provided the recipient maintains at least a C-plus average in college work and takes a minimum of 12 hours each semester.

“Chemical Lime Company was very pleased this year with the high quality of all the applicants for the Tom Chambers Scholarships,” said Keith Huck, Chemical Lime’s director of Southeast operations. “The three outstanding young people who have been selected represent the very best and most deserving in our community.”

Turek is the daughter of Barbi and Michael Turek of Alabaster, Reynolds is the daughter of Bobby and Jacqueline Reynolds of West Blocton and Killingsworth is the daughter of Todd and Amelia Killingsworth of Calera.

The scholarships are awarded annually to high school seniors who attend schools near a location where Chemical Lime has a significant manufacturing presence. Chemical Lime’s Alabama operations are centered in Shelby and Bibb counties.
