The stars of the evening were brightly shining May 1st as Davie Community Foundation awarded 84 scholarships to 62 students in the class of 2017. High school seniors from across Davie County gathered with their families and foundation donors at the Brock Performing Arts Center. This year, the Foundation will award $186,470 in scholarships to high school and college students!
Hosts for the evening were Jane Simpson, Foundation President and CEO, and Dr. Joel Edwards, Foundation Chairman. They introduced one by one Foundation Board members, who described the different “Oscar Scholarships”. Each presentation ended with the opening of an envelope announcing “the Scholarship Oscar goes to…” bringing about a great deal of surprise and excitement as names were read and trophies presented.
It was a wonderfully exciting evening for everyone! Sponsors for the evening were:
