Attending college requires a large investment on the part of students, parents and the community.  Students invest time.  Parents invest money and resources.  The community also invests time, money, and resources into a students’ success.

As a result of the investment made by community members, businesses, organizations, and non-profit groups, the Virginia Western Educational Foundation was able to award nearly $150,000 in scholarships to 118 students, for the 2010-2011 academic year.  An awards ceremony was held to recognize the scholarship recipients and donors.
