This scholarship awards evening was to honor the two most deserving graduating students from their high schools in the Tarheel Central Chapter's area. Each was chosen having excelled in academic achievements while holding leadership positions within their respective schools and for recognition of their community involvement.
Most notably, in addition to their scholastic achievements, this years recipients have taken that extra step forward to become part of a distinguished fellowship - those willing to serve their country in the US Armed Services. Both have joined the North Carolina Army National Guard and and have been promoted to Private First Class in their respective units.
Congratulations to PFC Brianna S. Vaughn, and PFC Jacob S. Matthews as this years scholarship winners and thank you for your service to this state and nation.
