Scholarships available for high school seniors

The Fines Creek Community Association is offering $500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors living within the Fines Creek, Panther Creek and White Oak communities, as well as home-schooled students who graduate from a program certified by the N.C. Division of Non-Public Education.

The scholarships serve to support motivated students within the community to further their education from an accredited college or university.

The Fines Creek Bluegrass Jam is the primary source of funds for the scholarship program. This year’s event will take place Aug. 9-10 on the grounds of the old Fines Creek School. As the jam has grown in size, more scholarships have been available to area seniors.

Applications are available in the guidance office of Tuscola High School or online. Deadline is May 15.
