Snow Hill Lions Club Scholarships - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Snow Hill Lions Club Scholarships

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Bill Gordy and the Snow Hill Lions' Club are offering two scholarship opportunities this year. The first is the Hancock Scholarship.

"That was started by Jay Hancock. He was a resident of Snow Hill, grew up in Snow Hill, graduated from Snow Hill High School, and it was his desire to endow a fund that would help aspiring seniors obtain their college education. It's annually offered in the amount of $2,000, and it's renewable for the next three years," says Bill.

This year, they're offering three of the $2,000 Hancock Scholarships. 

The other scholarship the organization offers is called – appropriately enough – The Lions Club Scholarship. They're also offering three, and each is valued at $1,000.

Of the Lions Club Scholarship, Bill says "We are generally looking for students that have demonstrated the ability to succeed at all phases of their life,  academic excellence, strong character, some good work being done in the area of extracurricular activities as well as community service."

Both the Hancock and the Lions Club Scholarships are available to Snow Hill High School Seniors. Applications are available at the Snow Hill High Guidance Office.

The deadline for both -- is April 21st.
