In 2016 over $50,000 in scholarships were awarded through Legacy Foundation.

All the scholarships are funded through endowments held by Legacy Regional Community Foundation. “Scholarships are a popular way for our donors to honor the life of a loved one or to give back from the fullness of their lives,” says Yazmin Wood, Executive Director. “We encourage every student to look into these opportunities. These donors know the value and the cost of good education and want to make it more possible for our graduates.”
