The Mountain Lakes Board of Realtors, headquartered in Murphy NC, gives out scholarships to graduating high school seniors each year. The funds are generously donated by our local Realtors. Students in Cherokee, Clay, and Graham Counties are eligible. Earlier this year, we were able to give out three $1,000 scholarships to these amazing students. Having been the chair person of the Scholarship Committee for the past several years, it’s always an honor to award it to such deserving kids. We wish you the best!
Most every year, I have the privilege of helping with the Mountain Lakes Board of Realtors Scholarship and several other local scholarships as well. This year was a great year for some amazing and quite deserving students. The Board was able to award 5 scholarships to different students to help them with their future education! Recipients were from Murphy NC, Robbinsville NC, and Hayesville NC. Two recipients are not pictured here.
Congratulations to the 2013 winners! You most certainly deserve it and we wish you the best of luck in your future.
At this time of year, I have the privilege of sitting on several scholarship committees where we get to interview many of the areas High School Seniors and award them with scholarships. The best part is, many of the scholarships cover not only the Cherokee County/Murphy NC area, but Robbinsville, Hayesville, and beyond. It’s an amazing opportunity. Every year there are some outstanding graduates who have accomplished unparalleled feats – all before they even go to college. The talent, skill, and genuine-ness (is that even a word!?) is something to be admired. Not only that, our local teachers need to be commended for helping them grow to be the person they are and the future that lays before them.
Mountain Lakes Board of Realtors Scholarship – this one is provided by our local Board of Realtors to a graduating Senior. Many area Realtors contribute this fund to give to a worthy graduate in the area covered by the Board of Realtors. This is always the one I contribute to as I get to have active roll in the process and get to meet the recipients.
The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina – this is a non-profit group that manages not only one scholarship, but many that cover all of Western North Carolina. They issued several to Cherokee County Students, and an astounding 106 awards to 101 students with a grand total of $284,500 scholarships – for 2010 alone. I’ve worked and/or met with many of the staff here and they are an amazing group of professionals who help make higher education possible for many of WNC’s best and brightest. Thank you for all your help and hard work!
With all this said, Congratulations to all graduating Seniors.
We’re rooting for you!
