$10,000 in college scholarships awarded to local students

This year the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wayne County are pleased to announce an unprecedented amount of scholarship money has been awarded to five very deserving candidates. Each recipient will receive $2,000 for the college of their choice.

The Jack Reed Memorial Scholarship is available to high school seniors wishing to further their education beyond high school. Traditionally, $2,000 is awarded at the discretion of the scholarship committee. Applicants must be a current or past member of the BGCWC and must be going on to continue their education at a post-secondary institute including a college, university or trade school.

This year, the pool of candidates was so strong, the committee members felt that they deserved more. So the committee raised an additional $4,000, bringing the total funds available to $6,000. When the Board of Trustees learned about the candidates and the extra efforts of the scholarship committee, they determined that the recipients deserved a scholarship award of $2,000 each, so several trustees contributed an additional $4,000, which brought the total to $10,000.

Recipients include four students from Richmond High School including Mickalin Cull, Jordan Hogg, Rebecca Ochoa and Michael Tillman and Annastacia Jenkins from Centerville High School. To read more about the recipients, click here.
