Lincoln parents, teachers get schooled at inaugural Scholarship Shoppe

The recent inaugural Scholarship Shoppe event was deemed a success. 

The Chamber of Commerce partnered with the Lincoln County school system and the Lincoln County Extension office to host the event, which was held Monday, Feb. 26 at the Extension Office.

More than 21 schools and organizations that offer scholarships to Lincoln County students were in attendance to assist parents and students through scholarship applications. More than 15 more applications were available for pick up, as well.

“We were so excited with the turnout of vendors and students, Lincoln County Chamber director Andrea Miller said. “Many parents and students expressed appreciation for the event, and were grateful for getting a little more comfortable with the scholarship application process.”

“We hope to make this an annual event,” said Kendra Mitchell, school liaison to the community, “and think we may move it back to late fall, to accommodate more application deadlines.”
