Applications for the nine scholarships administered by the Halifax County Public Schools Education Foundation are now available to members of the senior class at Halifax County High School.

Scholarship application forms may be secured from the HCHS guidance department as indicated in information shared with twelfth graders or online at www.hcpsef.org. The deadline for applications to be received by counselor Michaeleen Palmore is Monday, May 3.

The scholarships being offered by the Halifax County Public Schools Education Foundation are as follows: Hula B. Moorefield Scholarship, HCPS Education Foundation Scholarships, Edward Glasscock Memorial Scholarship, Delegate James Edmunds Community Involvement Scholarship, Coleman Starnes Memorial Athletic Scholarship, Lester L. Dillard, III Memorial Scholarship, Dr. Sun G. Lee Memorial Scholarship, Halifax Education Association Scholarship and Teach for Tomorrow Scholarship.

Recipients of the scholarships, as selected by the HCPS Education Foundation’s scholarship committee, will be on the basis of enrollment in the HCHS Class of 2021, academic achievement and leadership qualities, community and school activities, financial need and meeting any specific requirements of the award.

In addition to the scholarships, the HCPS Education Foundation also recognizes the Top 10 academic graduates as Moorefield Scholars with awards of $1,000 each.

Since 2008, the awarding of scholarships to deserving HCHS seniors has been a primary function of the Halifax County Public Schools Education Foundation. To date the HCPSEF has awarded $360,250 to members of the HCHS graduating classes.

Larry Clark, HCPSEF executive director, encourages every member of this year’s senior class who plans to continue their education beyond high school, to apply for those scholarships whose qualifications they meet.
