The BBB Student of Integrity Scholarship Awards Program was established in 2003 and recognizes students that share a common truth: everything that they say and do represents a choice, and their decisions help to determine the shape of their lives.
Each year, a total of 149 public and non-public high schools within the BBB 32-county service area are invited to participate by selecting their own Students of Integrity to submit entries to the BBB. The program received over 170 entries for consideration in 2013. Since the program’s inception in 2003, the BBB has received nearly 1,200 (1,189) Scholarship Applications from 139 schools, and awarded $84,000 in scholarships to 106 deserving students representing 64 schools throughout Western VA.
