Chamber scholarship program reaches new heights
The Chamber awarded $15,000 in scholarships in May 2018, an increase of $6,000 over the 2017 amount. Nine (9) $1,500 scholarships were awarded to Plainview High School students, and another $1,500 went to a student at Cornerstone Christian Academy.
The scholarship program for 2019
The Chamber will be awarding scholarships once again in May 2019. Applications will be available by March 2019.
The scholarship program has come a long way since its beginning in 2000. One $500 scholarship was awarded that year. A grand total of $88,600 in scholarships has now been awarded as a result of this Scholarship Golf Tournament, and the tremendous support of our corporate, business, individual, and team sponsors.
The 7th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament raised a record of $18,000. The 8th annual tournament is slated for August 17, 2019 at the Rainsville Golf & Country Club. The tournament’s and the scholarship program’s continued growth will once again depend on the generosity of a few dozen sponsors, the golfers and volunteers.
