WAW Scholarship Golf Tournament Raises $100,000

Participants of the 22nd Annual Wilkes Community College Foundation’s WAW Scholarship Golf Tournament enjoyed a beautiful fall day at Jefferson Landing on Thursday, September 22.

Deemed a huge success with 120 golfers participating, the tournament netted over $100,000 for the Wilkes Community College Education Promise scholarship program. Natasha Evans, Community Resource Development Specialist states, “The WCC Education Promise scholarship is a life-changing opportunity for many of our students to attend college tuition free. By breaking down the financial barriers to attend college, students can focus on their coursework, embrace the wrap-around services they need to succeed, and ultimately graduate with a credential that can support a family-sustaining wage.

For the 2021-22 academic year, the WCC Foundation awarded Education Promise scholarships to 76 students. The Wilkes Community College Education Promise scholarship goes far beyond dollars and cents; it’s providing a future for our community.” For more information about the WCC Education Promise scholarship or how to make a donation to the program, contact Allison Phillips at 336-838-6491 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
