Pender High School Students - $2500 per year
For over ten years Kitty E. Croom was employed at Pender High School. She was a strong advocate of education with a desire for children with financial need to be able to attend college. She also felt it important that after college students return the southeastern North Carolina to enrich the area with what they had learned. The Kitty E. Croom Memorial Scholarship was established in the 2004-2005 school year to support the beliefs of Mrs. Croom.
The $2500 per year scholarship award is renewable contingent upon the student remaining in good standing with the institution of higher learning and maintaining a 2.5 grade point average.
Only Pender High School students may apply for this scholarship. The application is available in the school guidance office and on line by January 15.
Deadline for applications is April 15.
