The Edgecombe Community College Foundation recently awarded scholarships to 157 ECC students during a scholarship awards ceremony on the Tarboro campus.
Ninety-five scholarships were awarded, with scholarship amounts ranging from $100 to $2,000. Students Samantha Wainright and Elijah Sherrod received the Dr. Hartwell H. Fuller Jr. Endowed Merit Scholarship from Mr. and Mrs. Roger Taylor.
Established in 2011, the Fuller Endowed Merit Scholarship honors Dr. Hartwell Fuller, who was president of ECC from 1994 until 2004. The scholarship is based on academic achievement and is awarded to two Edgecombe County public high school scholars.
Wainright, who is pre-nursing, and Sherrod, who is working toward an Associate in Arts degree, receive the full cost of an associate degree, including in-state tuition, books and a laptop computer.
