The Chesterfield County Fair Association is pleased to announce the presentation of four $1000 scholarships to members of the Class of 2012. Our winners this year represent four different high schools and exhibit a diverse range of abilities and pursuits.
Kaylyn Bailey is a graduate of Lloyd C. Bird High School and will be attending Johnson and Wales University in Providence, R.I., pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Baking and Pastry Arts, even though she is allergic to yeast and can’t eat her culinary masterpieces.
Mackenzie Gray graduated from Cosby High School and will attend Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Business with a dream toward opening her own fashion boutique; a dream which developed through her special relationship with her grandma.
Hannah Hoffert is a 2012 graduate of James River High School’s Leadership and International Relations Specialty Center. Hannah will attend Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pa., studying Civil and Environmental Engineering while also being a member of their Women’s Varsity Swim Team.
