The Charlotte County Branch of the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA) recently awarded a $500 scholarship to Matthew Myers, of Charlotte Court House.

“Throughout his years at Randolph-Henry High School, Matthew has maintained an impressive GPA of 4.09 making him number 16 of 137 in class rank,” according to a press release. “In addition to recently graduating from high school, Matthew also has already received a two-year associate’s degree from Southside Virginia Community college via the dual enrollment program. He has been active in the golf team and was captain during his senior year.  Additionally, he took an active role in the Beta and Junior Honor Societies. Upon his recent graduation and receipt of high honors, Matthew will embark upon Virginia Tech in Blacksburg this fall in aspirations of pursing a degree in agribusiness.”

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.

Myers is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ashley Myers, of Charlotte Court House.
