Association hands out scholarships

The Southside Virginia Chapter of the Virginia State University Alumni Association (SVVSUAA) has awarded two scholarships of $500 each to two students who have enrolled and headed to Virginia State University for the fall semester.  Recipients were Infinity S. Anderson and De’len Patterson  — both of whom are studying at VSU this semester. Kylor Reed, chapter president, said, “we are excited and proud that these two SVVSUAA scholarship recipients are just two of dozens of students from our chapter area who have chosen to attend VSU, and are headed to Virginia State University, very soon.” Pictured are, from left, Mary Reed, Patterson, Dr. Odessa Pride, Anderson and Reed.
