Roanoke, VA - Eighteen extraordinary Virginia high school seniors will be recognized at the 11th annual Student of Integrity Scholarship Awards Dinner to be held on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at the Shenandoah Club in Roanoke, VA. Each recipient will be presented with a $1,000 scholarship.
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. 2014 marks a special milestone for the program.
“We are truly honored and proud to have given over $100,000 to our students of integrity since our program began,” said Julie Wheeler, CEO and President of BBB serving Western VA. “We are thrilled to recognize these exceptional young men and women who truly exemplify 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 175 entries for consideration in 2014. Since the program’s inception in 2003, the BBB has received nearly 1,400 Scholarship Applications from 141 schools, and awarded $102,000 in scholarships to 124 deserving students representing 64 schools throughout Western VA.
