2013 Scholarship Awards
Josephine School Community Museum
Sunday June 2, 2013
Free and Open to the Public
The Josephine School Community Museum is proud to present its ninth annual scholarship awards to 2013 African-American graduates of Clarke County High School. Scholarships will be provided to all African-American graduates of the Clarke County High School, Class of 2013, who have been accepted to an accredited four-year college/university. The scholarship will be paid directly to the recipient’s college/university.
Last year, we were able to provide one new recipient $1,000 for his initial semester. In addition, using funds that were carried over from previous years, $500 was provided to seven former recipients who remain enrolled in college. This means that a total of $4500 in scholarships was awarded last year. We want to be as generous this year with scholarships as we have in the past.
If you would like to make a contribution to the Scholarship Fund. Please mail your check, made payable to the Josephine School Community Museum, to Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 423, Berryville, VA 22611.
