LELAND, N.C. — Communities In Schools of Brunswick County (CIS) awarded $1,000 scholarships to five graduating seniors at North Brunswick County High School during this year’s senior awards ceremony. Recipients were interviewed and scored based on academics, school activities, community involvement, financial need, and interview presentation.
CIS partners with local businesses, industries, civic clubs, agencies, communities of faith and individuals to provide these scholarships.
“I believe that all students can and should go onto higher education if they choose, and scholarships create a pathway to make that happen,” says CIS board member Joan Madsen.
Barbara Graham and Logan Shipman each received scholarships sponsored by Sheriff John Ingram and other guests at the Benefit Gala for Children. CIS Board Member Dr. Anna Blizzard sponsored a science scholarship for Alexia Shank. Tori Colvin received one in memory of Craig Gore. Capeside Animal Hospital sponsored the scholarship for Tylan Kelly.
