Virginia honors RCC scholarship recipients

A luncheon ceremony in Richmond on November 13 honored the scholastic achievements and successes of 44 students representing Virginia’s 23 community colleges. In addition to the state’s 24 Commonwealth Legacy Scholars, the ceremony recognized 10 recipients of the prestigious Valley Proteins Fellowships, and recipients of 10 other named scholarships.

From Rappahannock Community College, Melissa Hall was awarded one of the Commonwealth Legacy Scholarships. Hall graduated from Middlesex High School in June 2012 with a GPA of 4.019, and now, in her first year at RCC, is pursuing an associate of applied science degree in business management. She plans to enter the banking industry after completing her college career.

King George County resident Meagan Gay was selected by the Virginia Foundation for Community College Education as a Valley Proteins Fellow. As well as gaining full coverage of tuition and fees for her second year of classes at RCC, Gay will participate in a unique curriculum that includes leadership programs, cultural opportunities, and a community service project. After her RCC graduation, she will transfer to the College of William and Mary, where she plans to major in chemistry.
