The Rotary Club of Yanceyville Scholarship Fund has been endowed with The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region. The Scholarship will provide post-secondary educational scholarships to graduates of Bartlett Yancey High School.
Unfortunately, the scholarship was established upon the dissolution of the Rotary Club of Yanceyville. “We are deeply saddened that the remaining members found it necessary to dissolve the Club after 76 years”, said Barbara Scott, secretary of the Rotary Club of Yanceyville. “However, we are thrilled to have The Community Foundation continue the legacy of providing scholarships to graduates of Bartlett Yancey High School.”
“We are excited to accept this scholarship on behalf of the Rotary Club of Yanceyville,” said Debra L. Dodson, executive director of The Community Foundation. “What an honor it will be to continue the club’s good name and good work in the community.
Other people who wish to support Bartlett Yancey High School scholarships can make donations to the Rotary Club of Yanceyville Scholarship Fund. Checks should be made to The Community Foundation, c/o the Rotary Club of Yanceyville Scholarship, 541 Loyal Street, Danville, VA 24541. Applications for the scholarship will be available by February 1, 2014 at the high school and the foundation’s web site http://www.cfdrr.org
