The Henrico County Council of PTAs Scholarship has provided
financial assistance to Henrico County graduates in pursuit of higher learning for more than 20 years. The Scholarship
is in honor of Dr. George H. Moody. We believe in higher education and was committed to providing extra financial assistance
that will make it possible for a young person to continue his or her education upon graduation from high school. This
could mean going to college, entering trade school, nursing training or other post high school training.
The criteria we review includes financial need, academic achievement, extracurricular and community service,
the student's essay and recommendations. In the past 5 years alone, the County Council has awarded more than 65
scholarships for more than $86,000.
