Wilfong Family Scholarship Endowment
Many members of the Wilfong family and those they married attended Charlottesville, Wilkinson and Eastern Hancock High School and presided in Hancock County. Founders of the fund, Cheryl, Dona (& James Fuller), Paul (& Debbie), honor the Wilfong Family heritage through this need-based scholarship for Eastern Hancock students who might not otherwise be able to attain a college education. Their father was a poor student, so this was part of their inspiration for the Scholarship and who they had in mind to help. This scholarship provides financial assistance to a graduating senior or an adult graduate of Eastern Hancock High School who plans to pursue an accredited degree or certification at a college, university, or other post-secondary institution.
Applicants must be graduating seniors or past graduates of Eastern Hancock High School and be in the top one-third of their high school class academically. The primary criterion is financial need. See guidebook for a complete list of requirements.
