Roanoke, VA (April 30, 2013) Thirteen extraordinary Virginia high school seniors will be presented with a $1,000 scholarship at the 10th annual Student of Integrity Scholarship Awards Dinner to be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at the Shenandoah Club in Roanoke, VA.
The BBB Student of Integrity Scholarship Awards Program was established in 2003 to honor high schools seniors in Western Virginia who personify ethics demonstrated through leadership, community service, and overall personal integrity. The ‘Student of Integrity’ Scholarship recognizes students that share a common truth: everything that they say and do represents a choice, and their decisions help to determine the shape of their lives.
“Each year we are amazed at the exceptional entries we receive from the students of Western Virginia,” said Julie Wheeler, CEO and President of BBB serving Western VA. “This year’s scholarship recipients are true examples of young men and women who define the word integrity.”
Each year, a total of 149 public and non-public high schools within the BBB 32-county service area are invited to participate by selecting their own Students of Integrity to submit entries to the BBB. The program received over 170 entries for consideration in 2013. Since the program’s inception in 2003, the BBB has received nearly 1,200 (1,189) Scholarship Applications from 139 schools, and awarded $84,000 in scholarships to 106 deserving students representing 64 schools throughout Western VA.
