Community Service Committee Scholarship Winners Announced

The Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS® Community Service Committee’s mission is to make significant and positive contributions to our community through a collective effort of service to local charitable organizations. Each year, the Community Service Committee offers scholarships to recognize Wake County high school seniors who excel academically and demonstrate outstanding community service. The committee’s goal in granting these scholarships is to instill awareness throughout its membership and the community of the selfless service and achievement by these area high school seniors.

This year, the committee selected five outstanding seniors to receive scholarships.  The first received a $2,000 scholarship, the others $1,000 each. The winners and the schools from which they graduated are:

1. Nicholas Savage (Wake Forest-Rolesville) – Nicholas has donated more than 800 hours to community service, specifically co-founding a baseball league for special needs children in Wake Forest.  He plans to attend NC State in the fall and will major in engineering.

2. Dana Andersen (Apex) – Throughout her high school tenure, Dana volunteered more than 500 hours.  Dana plans on attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the fall and to double major in clinical psychology and business.

3. Sarah Kline (Cary Christian) – In addition to dedicating hundreds of volunteer hours to various nonprofits, Sarah has been involved with Girl Scouts of America for 10 years and has volunteered more than 4,000 hours with the organization.

4. Ashley Stacy (East Wake High School of Arts, Education and Global Studies) – Throughout high school, Ashley was involved with more than 16 nonprofit organizations and donated hundreds of hours of her time to support those charities.  Ashley will attend East Carolina University and plans to graduate with an offer to attend East Carolina’s Brody School of Medicine to pursue a career in medicine.
