Wilbert M. Wallace Scholarship Foundation

The Wilbert M. Wallace Scholarship Foundation awarded $1.000 scholarships to four graduating seniors at their school's awards ceremonies. The recipients were Rebekah Taylor and Priyanshi Parikh, graduates of York High School; and Kirsten Hanson and Geline Preudhomme, graduates of Tabb High School.

The Scholarship Foundation is named in honor the late Wilbert M. Wallace, who was an instructor and administrator in the York County School System for 34 years, ans was established by one of his former students, the late Curtis L.Taylor. The scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors in York and James City counties and the City of Williamsburg, who meet the requirements.

The Foundation will celebrate its 25th Anniversary on Saturday, October 24th at 1:00pm at the Ramada Inn, 500 Merrimac Trail in Williamsburg. The speakers will be former scholarship recipients- David Spratley(1999 recipient), Catherine Sparks (2012 recipient). Tickets are $30.00 for adults and $15.00 for children 11 years of age and younger.

As we celebrate our Silver Anniversary, we invite all of our former scholarship recipients to attend and help us celebrate. Local family members are asked to please make contact with the recipients that are out of town and inform them of this event and invitation. For additional information, please call Mr. Lloyd Wallace at 757-220-0807.
