Kiwanis Club Donates to SCC Scholarship Fund

Date:

The Kiwanis Club of Mount Airy recently presented a check to the SCC Foundation for their scholarship fund. Ms. Bettsee McPhail, Chapter President, presented the check to Sheila Franklin, SCC Foundation Executive Director.

The Kiwanis Club of Mount Airy Scholarship is awarded to a student who is a Key Club member of North Surry or Mount Airy High School. The student must have a 3.0 grade point average and demonstrate financial need. The recipient can study any program at Surry Community College.

“The Surry Community College Foundation greatly appreciates the generous monetary gifts from individuals, organizations, and civic groups such as the Kiwanis Club of Mount Airy,” Franklin said. “Without the kindness, generosity, and philanthropic heart of those in our community, many students would not be able to achieve their educational goals and ultimately their career goals. We are so fortunate to be in a position to facilitate these scholarship monies with students in need.”

The Kiwanis Club of Mount Airy works to promote different causes, including drug overdose awareness campaigns, the local historical preservation society and promoting organ donation through the Donate Life Campaign. The Mount Airy Chapter is ranked first in North Carolina for their work in encouraging individuals to become organ donors.

Anyone interested in joining the Kiwanis Club of Mount Airy may contact Ms. Bettsee McPhail at P.O. Box 705, Mount Airy, NC 27030. You must be at least 18 years of age to join.
