Two Chilton County Students Receive Smith Scholarship Award
Scholarship awarded for character, service, and ambition
Two Chilton County students receive the prestigious Smith Scholarship Award—Brittany R. Hall of Isabella High School and Vinceson (Vince) H. Moore of Chilton County High School. Brittany will be attending The University of Montevallo to study Social Work; and Vince will be attending Troy University majoring in Civil Engineering.
The Smith Scholarship is not singularly focused on test scores or grades. Instead, the Foundation seeks students who have demonstrated a desire to give back to others through volunteer work or assistance to family, while remaining actively involved in their schools and communities.
Brittany maintains outstanding grades while working to help assist her family with household expenses during the downturn in the economy. She has extensive volunteer and community service with the University of Montevallo Upward Bound Program. Brittany has also received the Linly Heflin Scholarship for her achievements and civic services.
Vince has excelled academically, while devoting his talents to his family and fellow students. Vince has been aiding his family rebuild the family home, as his parents are both disabled. He assists the University of Montevallo Upward Bound Director in tutoring for the ACT, focusing on Mathematics. Vince has also received the Troy University Chancellor and Dell Scholarships for his achievements.
The Smith Scholarship Foundation is the largest privately funded scholarship program in the State of Alabama.
