This year I am pleased to inform you that the Grand Chapter was able to award eight (8) scholarships to deserving students.
The Scholarship committee reviewed all applications submitted, and based on need and the desire for a higher education, eight scholarships were awarded. The competition was intense, and each applicate is to be commended for their academic achievements, extra-circular activities, and determination. A big thank-you to the 2020 scholarship committee for their time and talents to this great undertaking.
The checks in the amount of one thousand ($1,000) dollars were made out to the school that were will be attending. Each recipient was asked to keep in touch to let us know how they were doing.
I am proud to say that Christopher Mitchell, one of our applicates, was withdrawn because he was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Richmond. Congratulations were sent to this young man.
