Thank you for your interest in applying for scholarship funds through the Dr. James E. Hedrick, Jr. Memorial Scholarship.
This one-time scholarship is being offered for high school seniors graduating in June 2017 with an interest in pursuing a career in education, with special emphasis given to future educators with a strong interest in athletic coaching.
This scholarship recognizes outstanding high school students from schools in the Wake County Public School System that have PTA or PTSA units that are members of the Wake County PTA Council. If you are uncertain as to whether your school’s PTA/PTSA unit is a member of the Wake County PTA Council, please check with your unit president or treasurer to determine your eligibility to apply.
The awards, which may vary in size from $1,000 up to $5,000 in value, will be announced in May 2017. Award checks will be issued in June 2017, and these checks will be made payable to both the scholarship winner and the winner’s post-secondary school. Therefore, the student(s) receiving these scholarships will need to work with the Bursar’s office at their post-secondary school to ensure that the funds are appropriately applied to the student’s account.
