Surry Community College recently awarded seven students $500 scholarships.
Five students were awarded scholarships after their names were placed into a drawing made up of those who registered early for fall classes. Any degree-seeking student enrolled at the college in the spring 2016 semester with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher could be entered into the drawing by registering for classes by May 13.
The five recipients are: Leslie Atkins of King, Karen Inman of Mount Airy, Jesse Key of Dobson, Bailey Strickland of Mount Airy, and Chad Vestal of Elkin.
High school graduates who attended the Yadkin Center Open House in June had their names placed into a random drawing. The two winners from that drawing are: Maria Hernandez and Chelsea Broome, both of Yadkinville.
All seven scholarships were provided by the Surry Community College Foundation. The funds for the early registration scholarships were provided by the Surry Community College Foundation’s general fund, which is a result of the funds raised by the annual Woltz-Harold Golf Tournament. The funds for the Yadkin Center Open House scholarship awards came from the Dr. Frank H. and Louise Laffoon Walker Scholarship and the James Albert and Thelma Dinkins Hutchens Scholarship.
Registration is going on for mid-term fall classes. For more information, go to www.surry.edu.
