The 2020 5th Annual Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship was created to honor the life and legacy of longtime Anniston resident and philanthropist, Martha Vandervoort.
The Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship has been established to celebrate students who have made an impact in our community through leadership and community service. Our hope for the Memorial Scholarship is to invest in individuals with a servant’s heart that reflects Martha’s legacy of life. The Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship offers renewable, 4 year $6,000 scholarships to Calhoun County students with financial need who display academic achievement, a commitment to serving other, strong work ethic and leadership qualities.
This year, we presented a scholarship awards to Jordyn Johnson, a senior from Anniston High School.
Recipients of the scholarship were chosen through an application and interview process with a selection committee. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA, demonstrate they have a financial need and reflect the embodiment of charity.
