Ten members of the Valley High School class of 2018 have been awarded academic scholarships by the NaphCare Charitable Foundation of Birmingham, Alabama at Valley High’s Senior Recognition Program. This year’s awards mark the seventh anniversary of NaphCare’s contributions to Valley High School. Seventy-one graduating seniors have received NaphCare scholarships since the beginning of the Foundation’s association with Valley High School in 2011. NaphCare has also funded dual enrollment tuition scholarships for over one hundred and fifteen rising juniors. The following graduates were honored as NaphCare recipients at this year’s Senior Recognition Day: Joshua Bledsoe, Julisia Trammell, Jase Phillips, Alexis Walls, Colby Cannon, Erin Bryson, Keiron “KC” Carter, RonQuerious Flournoy, Lariana “Sage” Jackson, Darian Howell. Each student received a scholarship valued at $10,000. The scholarship Selection Committee includes members of the VHS class of 1961, whose scholarship initiative for graduating Valley High School seniors first attracted the attention of the NaphCare Foundation. NaphCare Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic records and service to their school and community. NaphCare is particularly interested in students who have a strong track record of productive and innovative service to the Valley community and who show promise of on-going community involvement in the future.
