Black Canyon City Chamber talks scholarships

Stacey Lane~ 4/23/2014

The Black Canyon City Chamber of Commerce was called to order April 16 at 7 p.m. at the Albins Civic Center. Reports included a Treasurer Report and Visitor Center's Report. Updates on the eighth annual Photography Contest held March 22 and a preview on the 3rd Annual Music in the Mountains were also given.
 Funds raised at these events go to the Scholarship Fund by the Community Association. The Black Canyon City Scholarship Program is made possible by people who volunteer their time and energy to provide students with financial assistance to continue their education after graduating from high school.
This is the 10th year for the scholarship program. The amount awarded during the previous 9 years totals $25,750. The number of scholarships and amount granted each year depends on the balance in the scholarship fund account.
During the past few years, three scholarships have been provided annually, as there has been good response to donation requests. This year, the Community Association has three awards to present once again: one for $500, one for $750, and one for $1,200 with 100 percent of donations going directly to the scholarship recipients. 
Donations may be mailed to the Black Canyon City Scholarship Program, P.O. Box 33, Black Canyon City 85324, or call Bob Cothem at 623-374-5553.
