Philpot Scholarship Awarded

Angelia Lunsford and Alexandra Lawrence display the certificates, presented by Betty Philpot, naming them recipients of the Bill R. Philpot Memorial Single Parent Scholarship. Funds for the scholarship come from donations given in memory of Mr. Philpot. The Philpot family chooses the recipients from applicants reviewed by the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Polk County. Mrs. Philpot said, “We usually just chose one applicant – but we just couldn’t choose between Angelia and Alexandra. Both are remarkable women – exactly the kind of women Bill believed should be given the opportunity the scholarship provides.
