Spring Scholarships – The Peurifoy Scholarship Program has awarded 26 scholarships for Spring semester study, each in the amount of $2,750. A seminary scholarship for twice that amount was also awarded. This number may grow, because several students are still awaiting final fall grades. Look for details in the February newsletter.
