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 Robert Watkins, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Watkins, of Charlotte Court House. 

After graduating from Randolph-Henry High School in 2014, Watkins was accepted into the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, where he is currently majoring in architectural history and preservation. After graduating in May 2018, he anticipates further advancing his education with a master’s degree and career in historic preservation.

The Charlotte County Branch AVPA was pleased to award this year’s scholarship to an impressive young man with a bright and promising future.
