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 2022 program will award five $2,000 scholarships to  deserving graduating seniors from Union County high schools. Written essays are due by March 17, 2022. Check with your school guidance counselor for details.
