The Belmont Club of Women recently awarded four $1,000 scholarships to local area graduating seniors. The winners are Hannah Hall for Louisa County High School, Tanner Kelson for Orange County High School, Hollie Chenault for Spotsylvania County High School, and Claire Carpenter for the Evelyn Ross Scholarship.
All of these students have outstanding academic records, extensive extra-curricular participation and superior community involvement. The funding for the BCOW scholarships comes from various fund raising activities that take place throughout the year, most notably the annual Belmont Horse Show held in August, the Belmont Craft Fair held in November and the sale of raffle tickets for a beautiful crocheted afghan and pillow set crafted by Evelyn Ross of Louisa.
For more information on participating in the horse show, call June Duren at (540) 894-4787; for the craft fair, call Jillian Holland at (540) 894-5207, or to purchase raffle tickets, call Ann Boulden at (540) 894-0538.
