The$2000.00 award Charlotte Community Association award is funded by donations and various fund raising events throughout the year
The criteria used to determine the recipients of The Edward Watson Memorial Scholarship and the CCA Scholarship is as follows: For the Edward Watson Scholarship the college bound senior must attend The Leadership Academy for Young Men (formerly Charlotte High). For the CCA Scholarship the college bound senior must reside in Charlotte, but can attend any area high school. Both are based on academics, extracurricular activities, and community service, as well as any honors received, letters of reference and finally a short essay from the applicant. The Scholarship Committee assigns a weight to each of these categories and independently scores each application.
We congratulate Joseph and Matthew and thank all of the young men and women who took the time to submit an application. There is a lot to be proud of in Charlotte, as you are all on the way to a bright future.
