2004


Sandhills Area Foundation awards scholarships for continuing education


Scholarships for continuing education were awarded to four area women by the Sandhills Area Foundation in 2004. The recipients expressed their desire to continue their education to advance professional skills and receive degrees in their area of study. The areas of study ranged from nursing to elementary education. One of the goals of the Sandhills Area Foundation is to award scholarships to graduating seniors, college students and those pursuing continuing education in the hopes they will remain or return to Valentine to contribute to the area in their fields of endeavor.
