2021 Application for George H.V. Cecil Journey Scholarship is Here!
To honor the eighteen years of selfless service George Cecil dedicated to the Journey Scholarship, we have renamed the program in his honor. Mr. Cecil was the founder of the program, which is designed to help promising seniors in our rural communities to gain access to needed funds for college. Besides funding the scholarship, he served enthusiastically as the Chair of our Selection Committee. He always looked forward to the awards ceremony since he believed supporting our youth in gaining valuable education is one of the most important contributions we can make to our communities. We are incredibly grateful for his leadership and excited to announce that his daughter, Edie Cecil, will continue the family tradition by serving on the Selection Committee! If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund to support WNC students, please click here.
