Remember With A Scholarship

Fund a Scholarship

Honor A Classmate or Loved One 

Funding a scholarship for a deserving AHS senior has become a favotite way to recognize someone or pay respects to a family member, a teacher, classmate or friend while helping to further an AHS graduate's education. With a contribution of $500 or more, a scholarship can be awarded in honor of someone, in memory of someone or in the name of a business or organization.  

This is our sixth year of presenting scholarships at the AHS Senior Awards program since we organized the Alumni Association in the Fall of 2008.  We have now presented thirty scholarship amounting to a total of $25,000.

In 2014, eight friends of Albemarle provided scholarships as follows:

  • In Honor of Principal Benjamin Hurt (1954 - 1984) by Iris Tomlin Carr (1956)
  • In Memory of wife Connie Young Fix (1955) and son Joey Fix by Joe Fix (1956)
  • In Honor of Albemarle High School Class of 1958 by a member of the Class of 1958
  • In Memory of AHS Guidance Department Director Virginia Dofflemyer by daughter Martha Dofflemyer Clarke (1966)
  • In Memory of son Benjamin Hair (2006) by mother Brenda Graves Hair (1968) and Gordon Hair
  • In Memory of Nick Smith (2008) Nick Smith Theatre Scholarship by Grandmother Shirley Smith
  • In Memory of Patricia Houchens Blincoe (1954) by husband Ralph Blincoe (1954)
  • In Honor of Bobby Gregg (2004) Sutherland Middle School Band Director by Anonymous Donor
