On behalf of the Mandie Phillips Memorial Association, we are SO excited to announce that we have surpassed last year’s numbers with a whoppin’ $36,000! We could not have achieved these results without the outstanding community support that you all have given to us. Your generosity and encouragement will not only help local students in our community achieve a higher education, but also keeps Mandie’s legacy alive.
With this money, the Mandie Phillips Memorial Foundation will be TRIPLING the amount of scholarships we will be awarding for Fall of 2018 with three $5,000 scholarships. In addition, we will be contributing $17,500 into the scholarship endowment to ensure that this scholarship will be able to be awarded for years to come. Lastly, we will be donating $3,500 to the Cape Fear Chapter of the American Heart Association.
The Mandie Phillips Memorial Scholarship is directed for high school students from New Hanover County who plan on attending Appalachian State University.
