Torrell Williams of Wake Forest received a 2015 Horatio Alger Honeywell scholarship in the amount of $10,000. Williams attends North Carolina A&T State University. This annual scholarship recognizes outstanding students, who, in the face of great adversity, have exhibited an admirable commitment to pursuing their college degree in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM). The scholarship was created for first-year college students enrolled at a Honeywell Partner or Horatio Alger Collegiate Partner School.
Vance-Granville Community College recently honored students who completed the college’s year-long emergency medical technician-paramedic program in July. Graduates included Timothy Fulcher, Jeffrey Harris, Jamie Orr, Phyllis Stokes and Modjeska Thrower, all of Henderson.
