Education: Scholarship breakfast Saturday

The Joe Hall Scholarship Breakfast will be Saturday from 7 to 10 a.m. at the Cleveland Lions Club on Cemetery Street in Cleveland.
Donations and the funds raised go to support two $1,000 scholarships for two West Rowan students.
Joe W. Hall was a charter member of the Mount Ulla Lions Club, and a life member of the Cleveland Lions Club. He served these clubs for more than 40 years, and was active in the Cleveland Community Volunteer Fire Department. His other community service included being chair of the Cleveland Precinct of the Democratic Party and president of the Rowan County Farm Bureau.
The annual breakfast began years ago as a bunch of friends gathered for fun before the races at Darlington, S.C. Since his death in 1991, the breakfast has been known as the Joe Hall Memorial Breakfast.
The scholarship started as a joint effort with the Mount Ulla Lions Club, and later became the effort of the Cleveland Lions Club alone. In 1998, the scholarship grew to $1,500, and is given as The Joe W. Hall Memorial Scholarship, presented by the Cleveland Lions Club. This past year the scholarship was changed to two $1,000 scholarships.
Since 1995 the Hall family has contributed $1,000 to each year’s efforts.
Seniors at West Rowan High School apply for the scholarship through the guidance office.
The scholarship is among the longest-running awards in western Rowan County, dating back to 1981.
