46 Marion Co. seniors awarded scholarships through Mackenzie Scott Foundation, PRCC
MARION COUNTY, Miss. (WDAM) - The Marion County School District held a news conference Tuesday morning to announce the number of recipients for a new scholarship opportunity for graduating seniors.
District Superintendent Carl Michael Day announced that 46 students were awarded the first set of scholarships created through the Marion County School District Education Foundation Fund.
The students who were awarded the scholarships were told during both East and West Marion County High Schools’ graduation ceremonies this past Friday.
In November of 2022, Day announced the creation of the foundation fund after MCSD received a grant from the Mackenzie Scott Foundation.
During that announcement, Day said the foundation will help send about 50 to 100 seniors to attend any PRCC campus on free scholarships each year.
