Rotary Club Scholarship Recipients



The Rotary Club of Rocky Mount recently awarded scholarships to six NC Wesleyan Students using proceeds from the club’s annual signature project, Tackle the Tar 5K obstacle race which raises funds to “send local students to local colleges.”


Scholarship recipients must be residents of Nash or Edgecombe counties; demonstrate qualities of leadership, good citizenship, community spirit, and academic progress; maintain a 2.75 GPA or higher, and must be in their second year of study or higher.


The NC Weslyan College Rotary Scholarship for 2017 are pictured below:
