ELKINS, W.Va (WDTV) – Davis and Elkins College held an event for Emerging Leaders Scholarship applicants.
The new scholarship will provide a full trip for the 2022 West Virginia High School graduate.
Students who applied for the scholarship wrote an essay about what they would do to help their state.
On-campus applicants are invited to a party to learn more about the school and the scholarship.
“It will allow students to focus on their future, focus on their learning, focus on their activities, and quite frankly be kids and not worry about money and the same for their families,” said Rosemary Thomas, Executive Vice President.
The scholarship application deadline was November 15. They had planned to announce the winner on December 15th.
