ECA honors scholarship recipients

The Davie County Extension and Community Association (ECA) holds an annual soup lunch fundraiser each January to support a high school senior scholarship fund.

This group provided two $750 scholarships to deserving youth: Aubrey Myers from Davie County High School and Molly Abigail “Abby” Boger from the Davie County Early College.

Myers will attend Appalachian State University in the fall, where she plans to study wildlife biology to prepare for becoming a NC Wildlife biologist/officer.

Boger will attend the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where she plans to study biostatistics to prepare for becoming a cardiologist.

Jeanne Gilbreath, Davie County ECA president, stated: “We are so proud of these young ladies and wish them the very best in this exciting time as they begin their college education.  We are also so thankful for the community’s support over the years allowing us to continue providing these scholarships to Davie County youth.”

The mission of the Extension and Community Association is to strengthen families through leadership development, volunteer work and educational programs provided through research from N.C. State University and N.C. A&T University.

There are four ECA clubs in Davie, and new members are welcome at any time.
