Williamsburg Community Foundation Awards WJCC Students With $73,640 in Scholarships

Fifty-four graduating seniors from Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools (WJCC) were recently awarded $73,640 in scholarships from the Williamsburg Community Foundation. The students were honored at a reception held Sunday, June 3 at Warhill High School. The foundation’s Scholarship Fund represents a community-wide effort to recognize the accomplishments of WJCC students as they graduate from high school and commit to furthering their education.  Collectively, the funding provided for this year’s scholarship was the largest amount the foundation has ever awarded. The scholarships are made possible by contributions from individuals, businesses, high school parent-teacher associations and civic groups. The scholarships, for $1,000 or more, were awarded on the basis of curriculum difficulty, class rank, extra-curricular activities, application essay and financial need.
