Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College Announces New Scholarship for Logan High School Students

Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College will be offering a scholarship to students who graduate from Logan High School. The scholarship will be available for Southern’s 2019-2020 academic year, and applications are now being accepted. Interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

The scholarship will pay tuition, text books, and/or related educational expenses up to $2,500 per academic year. The student must be enrolled in a technical program at Southern, and have a minimum Grade Point Average of 2.0. Preference will be given to students from Mud Fork, W.Va.

The scholarship was created by former Logan resident Danny Vance in honor of his parents, Otto and Iris K. Vance.

“Neither of my parents got the chance to finish high school, yet they were huge advocates of education,” Danny Vance said. “They believed that education not only gave you opportunities for a better career but also made you a better person because it opened your mind to newer ideas. This scholarship is a way to give back to a community that Mom and Dad both loved.”

Please visit southernwv.edu/Foundation for an application. Completed applications may be submitted in person on Southern’s Logan campus, through email to [email protected], or by fax at 304-792-7173.
