Jimmy W. Welch, executive director of the Credit Bureau of the Virginias Foundation, Inc., presents Susan Lowe, vice president of Southwest Virginia Community College, with a check for scholarship assistance. The Credit Bureau of the Virginias Foundation Scholarship program grants six $1000 scholarships annually to students from the southwest Virginia/southern West Virginia counties bordering the Bluefield area. Students may receive the scholarship as long as they are successfully enrolled in a program at SWCC pursuing a diploma, usually for two years. Students targeted to receive these scholarships should have a grade point average of 2.0 to 3.0 and maintain that average to continue receiving the scholarship.

Danny Coulthard, board member of the Credit Bureau of the Virginias and Dr. Tommy Wright, president of Southwest Virginia Community College join in the presentation. For scholarship information at SWCC or for interest in supporting the scholarship program, contact Susan Lowe at 276.964.7304 or at susan.lowe@sw.edu.
