Pilot Masonic Lodge #493 A.F. & A.M. recently awarded its 2018 Scholarship to East Surry High School graduate Chandler Queen.

Each year Pilot Lodge awards a $500 scholarship to an East Surry senior planning to attend Surry Community College. The scholarship is renewable for a second year.

Queen was formally presented the scholarship by Pilot Lodge Past Master Rick Smith at the East Surry Awards Day Ceremony on May 25. He and his girlfriend, Cassidy Torrey, were invited to attend a June 26 dinner at the lodge, where Smith introduced them to lodge members. He then shared a brief synopsis of Queen’s background and college plans with the lodge.

Queen plans to attend Surry Community College and later transfer to Appalachian State University, where he intends to major in business.
