WELDON, N.C. – Branch Banking & Trust (BB&T) presented a $5,000 check to Halifax Community College on Feb. 13.

Funding from a U.S. Department of Education PBI Formula grant in the amount of $50,000 has been used to match BB&T's contributions, bringing the scholarship to $100,000. Funds will be used to support local high school students with the highest grade point average from their respective schools within the service area who intend to attend HCC.
