Charlotte County APVA awards scholarship

Published 1:04 pm Thursday, June 30, 2016

The Charlotte County Branch of the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA) was formed more than 80 years ago to preserve the rich history and heritage of Charlotte County. A scholarship was created in 2004 by the board of directors to continue and maintain its pledge of preserving the county’s past for future generations by financing a scholarship for a Charlotte County high school senior or a county resident who is currently enrolled in college and has at least a 3.0 grade point average.

This year, the Charlotte County APVA Scholarship was awarded to William Greyson Pettus, son of Mr. and Mrs. William and Sharon Pettus of Keysville. Throughout his years at Randolph-Henry High School, Greyson has maintained an GPA of 4.27 making him No. 7 of 117 in class rank. He has been active in tennis and cross-country, a member in the FFA, Youth & Government Club, Debate, Scholastic Bowl, Beta Club and many others. 

Outside of his educational commitments, extracurricular activities and officer positions, he also has found time to work as a farm assistant at nearby Maple Roads. In the fall, he will attend The College of William & Mary and his intended course of study is environmental policy.

“The Charlotte County Branch AVPA was pleased to award this year’s scholarship to an impressive young man with a bright and promising future,” the chapter stated in a release.
