High School Scholarship Program

Each year, Wilkes Communications and RiverStreet Networks invests in the future leaders of our communities by awarding scholarships to numerous high school seniors across our serving areas.

About the Program

In 2008, Wilkes Communications established a scholarship program to support high school graduates throughout the service area. Each Spring, the Scholarship Selection Committee reviews applications and awards scholarships to commendable graduates furthering their educational journey. Since the program began we have proudly awarded more than $400,000 to over 400 seniors.
