Congressman David Scott (GA-13) and his wife, Alfredia Scott, honored 10 area students who received a total of $11,500 in scholarship awards through the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Spouses and Foundation scholarship programs. Since 2003, Congressman Scott and his wife have awarded $140,500 in scholarships to 81 students.
“The students honored with these scholarships are the best of the best and have all demonstrated academic excellence and a commitment to community service. I applaud their achievements,” said Congressman Scott. Mrs. Scott, wife of Congressman Scott, was very instrumental in securing the scholarships for the students as an active member of the CBC Spouses program. “My husband and I are overjoyed and so proud to recognize these bright young people for their exceptional academic achievements and ambitious goals,” said Mrs. Scott.
