The Weddington Optimist Club started this program in 1997 for Sun Valley and Weddington High School by awarding a laptop computer to a deserving senior. The program eventually expanded to include all eleven high schools in Union County.  Students write an essay as to why they feel they deserve a scholarship for their future pursuits in life.  

The new 2021 program will award five $2,000 scholarships to  deserving graduating seniors.
