Watson Awarded Friend Bank’s Lawrence Harris Endowed Scholarship Fund
The Lawrence Harris Endowed Scholarship Fund was established by Friend Bank in December of 1992 to promote the education of deserving undergraduate students who enroll full-time at the University of Alabama. The scholarship is awarded only to graduates of Slocomb High School and is open to entering freshmen, transfer students, and continuing full-time undergraduates at the University of Alabama. A total of over $88,000 has been awarded to sixteen students since the fund was established.
Friend Bank is pleased to announce Hillary Watson as the 2009 Lawrence Harris Endowed Scholarship Fund recipient. “We want to encourage the youth of today to pursue goals of higher education. Miss Watson’s scholarship application demonstrated her determination to excel academically and her anticipation of a bright future. Friend Bank is pleased to recognize her efforts and award this scholarship to her,” commented Judson Brooks, President of Friend Bank Slocomb.
