The League of Women Voters has announced its first annual scholarship. The League will award one $300 scholarship to a student beginning college in the 2023-2024 academic year. The awardee must be a high school senior, a resident of Pike County, and accepted to and plan to attend an accredited college or university. The recipient will be chosen based on community involvement, goals, need and grades. The scholarship was funded in 2022 to honor retiring president and original founder, Elizabeth Forrest, after seven years of service. Donations for future scholarship recipients are also encouraged and being accepted at this time.
