Three scholarships will be presented to local high schoolers by the Floyd County Chamber of Commerce this year, including the John McEnhill Legacy Scholarship of $1,000.
The McEnhill Legacy Scholarship is one non-renewable scholarship available to a Floyd County graduating senior who is altruistically minded, and demonstrates highly promising leadership and community involvement, personified values in former Chamber director John McEnhill.
This scholarship can be used for pursuing an undergraduate degree or fees associated with a reputable program that provides leadership development and/or community service training program.
Students with a GPA of 2.0 and above who desire to bring their talents, abilities, and skills back to Floyd County and enhance our community through involvement and volunteerism should apply.
The Chamber will also present its two regular scholarships again in 2022. One $500 scholarship is intended for a trade school/community college, and another $500 scholarship will be awarded to a student planning to attend a four-year college/university.
