2024 Scholarship Recipients Alexis Kibler and Sophia Williams

Hill & Valley Scholarship Program

We recently completed another successful year awarding two $500 scholarships to Luray High School and Page County High School
graduating seniors.  This year we had multiple applicants from both schools to choose from.

The Page County HS recipient was Alexis Kibler, who will be pursuing a career in Wildlife Biology at Laurel Ridge Community College. 

Sophia Williams, from Luray High School, will be studying Urban Planning at the University of Pittsburgh. 

Many thanks to Inez Myers who has chaired the scholarship program since 2018.  

Julie Edmonds assisted with attending a school career day to help spread the word about the program.  She also presented the Luray High School award on June 4th, and member Delynda Hendricks presented the Page County award the following night.
