South River Electric Membership Corporation’s volunteer organization, the Power Source Volunteers, awarded scholarships to four admirable high school seniors this year.
Jacylyn Tuggle, daughter of John and Dana Tuggle of Newton Grove, will receive a $1,000 scholarship to attend Campbell University to study chemistry.
The following recipients received scholarships in the amount of $500: Dawson McLamb, son of Derek and Misty McLamb of Roseboro, plans to attend Fayetteville State University; Andrew Esterly, son of Bryan and Tracy Esterly of Hope Mills, will attend NC State University; and Melissa Smith, daughter of Ella Knott and Anthony Smith of Fayetteville, plans to attend UNC-Chapel Hill.
Factors considered in granting scholarships include: character, moral standards, citizenship, past and present academic performance, letters of recommendation, statements of career goals and qualifications; extra-curricular activities; and a personal interview with a three member interview panel.
