Scholarship offered

Graduating seniors enrolled in Prince Edward County High School (PECHS) are invited to apply for the fifth annual Elias Harold Jones Memorial Scholarship for Leadership and Character.

“Elias was a senior at PECHS when he died suddenly in 2012,” according to a press release. “To honor his memory, his family and friends fund a scholarship for a PECHS student who will continue his or her education in either a two- or four-year college or university.”

The scholarship application packet is available in the guidance office at PECHS. The award is $1,500. Students who have been active in the community and in school are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is April 18.
