ACCESS Scholarship Awards Luncheon
The ACCESS Scholarship Awards Luncheon celebrates the achievements of our newest generation of ACCESS Scholars. Every year, ACCESS has the pleasure of awarding its own ACCESS “Last-Dollar” Scholarship to nearly 150 students. These scholarships, totaling more than $800,000, range from $5,000 to $25,000. This year, we will be awarding “Last-Dollar” Scholarships to our 32nd graduating class.
This event has featured keynote speakers such as:
The Honorable S. Bernard Goodwyn, Virginia Supreme Court Justice
Wes Moore, Best-Selling Author and Rhodes Scholar
David Mele, President, Homes.com and Former Publisher, Virginian-Pilot
Darryl Bell, Actor and Producer, "Ron" from A Different World
Lavell White, Motivational Speaker
Our Scholarship Awards Luncheon hosts over 600 attendees—including students, parents, school officials, as well as business and community leaders. The event draws annual coverage from local media outlets including The Virginian-Pilot, WVEC Channel 13, and WTKR Channel 3.
