Reneé Jones Carter Memorial Scholarship established at HCC

WELDON – Halifax Community College’s Bryan Carter has established the Reneé Jones Carter Memorial Scholarship. Preference will be given to those interested in English as a major. If none exist, those interested in teacher preparation will be given preference. Financial need must be demonstrated. The scholarship will be awarded to a student who maintains a 2.0 grade point average or above.


Carter explained his motivation for establishing the scholarship. “My late wife was an elementary school teacher for 14 years. She loved helping the underprivileged. She felt it was her duty to help the defenseless,” he said. “I wanted to continue that tradition in her stead.”


An English instructor at HCC, Carter has been with the college for nearly six years.
