Twelfth Scholarship Created to Aid Wayne County Student

BOONE–Make it an even dozen. A Wayne County businessman, who wishes to remain anonymous, has established a $20,000 scholarship to support a minority student from Wayne County enrolling at Appalachian State University in 2013.

This is the twelfth scholarship he has established since 1992 to benefit a Wayne County student. Two additional scholarships were awarded in the 1990s to Craven County students.

The scholarship is presented each year to the black student in Wayne County School’s third grade who scores highest on end of year testing in math.

Scholarship recipients must meet Appalachian’s admissions requirements and agree to major in either math or science. The award is renewable if a minimum 2.5 grade point average is maintained.

The recipient of the Fall 2013 Freshman Class Scholarship will be announced this fall by Wayne County Schools officials.
