Pegge Haywood Scholarship Deadline Approaching

Pegge Haywood left a generous gift to the Cabarrus County Republican Party in her Will. In honor of Pegge the GOP board created an annual scholarship award to be given to a college-bound high school student who displays a commitment to the party by his or her activities.

Why is this scholarship being given?

It is our hope that the Pegge Lee Haywood Scholarship will encourage and support young people who follow Pegge’s example and dedicate themselves to public service, charitable work, and a commitment to Republican ideals.

The following paragraph is excerpted from a document creating the scholarship:

The application process will award the scholarship to an outstanding individual who demonstrates a commitment to Republican principles expressed by participation in party activities, and a brief essay submitted with their application. The applicant’s choice of college major need not be politically oriented or aimed at public service.
