The Cabarrus County Extension and Community Association recently awarded college scholarships of $1,000 each to two Cabarrus County students to further their college educations.
This scholarship was awarded for the first time several years ago to one student in the amount of $500. Through the volunteer work of ECA, the scholarship grew from $500 to $750, and recently to $1,000. This is the first year that two scholarships have been awarded by Cabarrus ECA.
