The Chesapeake-Virginia Beach Delta Foundation (CVBDF) has awarded its inaugural scholarships to two Hampton Roads students:
- Rebecca Johnson, a senior at Green Run High School in Virginia Beach is the recipient of the Foundation’s $750 HBCU Scholarship Award, given to a deserving student who plans to attend a historically black college or university. Johnson, who has a 3.8 grade point average, plans to attend Howard University.
- Tyra Hendricks, a senior at Granby High School in Norfolk, is the recipient of the Foundation’s $750 Academic Scholarship Award, given to a deserving student for outstanding academic achievement. Hendricks, who has a 4.15 grade point average, plans to attend Old Dominion University.
“From the onset, we knew one of our first initiatives would be to give scholarships to deserving students,” said Deidre Eason, chair of the CVBDF Board. “We are delighted that we can help these two students reach their educational goals.”
