The Junior Woman’s Club of Sparta (JWCS) is pleased to announce that three scholarships, each in the amount of $1,000, have been awarded to local female high school seniors.

Jessica Amick, of High Point Regional High School, and Erica Di Santi and Bridget Higdon, both of Sparta High School were the 2016 award winners.

As a reflection of the JWCS mission, awards were based primarily on service to community and school. Scholarship winners were formally honored at Sparta Day on May 14, with recognition in High Point's Graduation Program and a presentation at Sparta’s Senior Awards Night.

The Junior Woman’s Club of Sparta is comprised of women from Sparta and the surrounding area who have come together as friends to foster goodwill while organizing events and activities that bring our community together. Each year the JWCS raises and distributes thousands of dollars to local organizations and charities. To learn about JWCS membership, visit www.jwcsparta.org or email jwcsparta@gmail.com.
