LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Deciding on where to go to college can be a difficult decision for many high school students. For one student in Louisville, that decision includes choosing between several schools - and scholarships.

So far, Tae'Von has been awarded full rides from Hanover College, Wofford College and Berea College as well partial scholarships from Bellarmine, Murray State, Centre College and others.
