2020 Carroll County Scholarship Recipients Announced

Carroll County Community Foundation awards more than $245,172 in scholarships for 2020-21 school year

June 12, 2020 -- Twenty students from Carroll County high schools and statewide universities will have help in their studies during the 2020-21 school year, thanks to the Carroll County Community Foundation.

The foundation has awarded scholarships and renewals from funds with an approximate value of $245,172. This includes administering the award and finalists for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship. (The Carroll County Community Foundation Scholars group comprises the Lilly finalists.)

“These scholarships are another example of the many donors in our caring community and the value they place on education,” said Dr. Paul Manning, chairman of the Carroll County Community Foundation Services Committee. “In these extraordinary days, this tradition of giving is especially meaningful, given the challenges and the sacrifices so many of the graduating seniors will make this year. Although they may not have a graduation ceremony, they can know the community continues to support and reward their hard work.”

Manning went on to praise those who make the scholarships possible. “We thank and acknowledge our donor community,” he said. “Their generosity and continuing contributions help fund scholarships like these, which are so vital to students and their families.”
