Professional Women’s Club will offer two $500 scholarships

The West Virginia Professional Women’s Club of Buckhannon is offering two $500 scholarships to two seniors who will graduate from Buckhannon-Upshur High School in May 2013 and who plan to continue their education this fall at a college, university or technical school.

The purpose is to assist two deserving students to pursue a career in their chosen fields.

The students must have a grade point average of at least 3.0 and state their major and what college they plan to attend. They also must write a letter to the club listing academic achievements during the past four years and may include the applicant’s reason for need of financial assistance.

Application forms may be obtained from a guidance counselor at B-UHS. Applications must be completed and attached to their correspondence. Applications must be mailed to Shelia Thomason, education committee chairwoman, 190 Circle Drive, Buckhannon, WV 26201-3501 by May 6.
