Dublin High School graduates nearing goal to endow NRCC scholarship

During the past 12 months letters have been mailed and a benefit concert held during a high school class reunion. As a result, donation checks have been "rolling in" to the New River Community College Educational Foundation.

That's what happens when a group of devoted people get behind a fundraising effort to endow a scholarship for deserving NRCC students. Now less than $5,000 is needed to reach the $25,000 goal to endow a scholarship named for Dublin High School Alumni.

Angie Covey, executive director of the NRCC Educational Foundation says, "With the philanthropy of Dublin High School graduates, we will be able to award the first-ever Dublin High School Alumni Scholarship next fall. For many of our students, receiving a scholarship is the pivotal element to reaching their educational goals."

The idea of the scholarship arose during planning meetings for a "Nifty-Fifties" class reunion that was held this summer. Brenda Jones, a member of the planning committee and fiscal technician in the NRCC Educational Foundation office, says to date $20,425 has been raised toward the goal. She and a committee of Dublin High School graduates have sent hundreds of letters to DHS graduates asking for donations for the endowment. "This is a great way to honor our alma mater and to help a relative of a Dublin High School graduate go to college at NRCC," she says.

Dublin High School closed its doors 40 years ago, merging with Pulaski High School when all students moved to the newly opened Pulaski County High School.

Graduates and friends of Dublin High School may make tax deductible donations by sending a check to the NRCC Educational Foundation, P. O. Box 1127, Dublin, VA 24084. (Please write DHS Alumni Scholarship on the memo line.)
