WCPS Students Named Emmet & Mary Robinson Trust Fund Scholars
Emmet & Mary Robinson Trust Fund scholars
Six Wayne County Public Schools (WCPS) graduating seniors have been selected to receive Emmet & Mary Robinson Trust Fund scholarships.

The trust fund was set up by Emmet and Mary Robinson to award scholarships to students who attend a WCPS high school. The recipients must intend to continue their education in the fields of medicine, nursing, agriculture or in the ministry of the Presbyterian and Episcopal Churches. They must also have some financial need.
 
“As Director of the school district’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program, it is always rewarding to see high school students successfully complete CTE courses and then receive financial support to actively pursue higher education and careers in those same areas,” states Beverly Boltinhouse. “We are very appreciative of the financial opportunity this scholarship offers to our graduating seniors.”

The Emmet & Mary Robinson Trust Fund scholarships are renewable each year based on satisfactory academic standing and maintenance of the declared major field of study. This fall, more than $28,000 in new and renewable aid will be distributed. In addition to this year’s recipients, past recipients will receive renewable support to assist them in their studies at Barton College, East Carolina University, North Carolina State University, Pitt Community College, University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, and University of North Carolina–Wilmington.
