(Bluefield)—A $12,000 gift from the "Annie and Willie Foundation" will provide scholarship opportunities for two Bluefield State College students, according to Betty Carroll, BSC's Director of Institutional Advancement and Planning.

The Foundation will fund two two-year scholarships of $3,000 per year per scholarship. One general scholarship will be awarded, with the other scholarship to be presented to a physically-challenged, mobility-impaired, or re-entry student.

"Scholarship gifts are so important to our students," noted Carroll. "BSC's students depend on scholarship help to begin, then to remain in school and graduate. The scholarship support from the Annie and Willie Foundation will make a significant difference for the students who receive the scholarships."

Bluefield State College recently received scholarship funds from the Winston-Salem, NC-based Annie & Willie Foundation. Students will be notified of the process and timeline for submitting scholarship applications, according to Carroll.
