Golden LEAF Scholar
Stacey Ketchie, a graduate of West Rowan High School, is one of 215 recipients of a Golden LEAF Foundation Scholarship of as much as $12,000.
Each of these students was selected to receive a $3,000 scholarship each year for up to four years of study at a participating North Carolina college or university. Recipients from rural, economically distressed counties are selected based on career and education goals, a review of school and community service activities, length of residence in the county and expressed intent to contribute to the state’s rural communities upon graduation from college.
The Golden LEAF Foundation created the scholarship program to broaden education opportunities and provide support to students from rural counties hoping that after graduation recipients will provide leadership in these communities.
