The Watauga-Ashe-Wilkes Scholarship Fund recently held its 17th annual golf tournament. The tournament featured a celebration of the impact the scholarship has had on the community. More than 130 golfers joined a robust group of sponsors to raise more than $100,000 to benefit the scholarship fund.
The scholarship was established in 2001 with the purpose of providing students with financial hardships the opportunity to attend college. More than $450,000 has been awarded to more than 80 students since the scholarship’s inception.
