American Woodmark Career and Technical Education Achievement Scholarship
The American Woodmark Foundation was founded in 1995 to be the charitable arm of American Woodmark Corporation. The company operates 11 manufacturing facilities in eight states, including one in Orange, Virginia. The American Woodmark Foundation Scholarship is funded entirely by the American Woodmark Foundation. The Orange County Education Foundation is grateful to those local American Woodmark employees who have supported the provision of these awards. It is proud to assist the American Woodmark Foundation with the marketing and management of its annual scholarships awards.
Upon the recommendation of local American Woodmark employees, the American Woodmark Foundation provides an annual award to an Orange County High School graduate who is pursuing post-graduate study in college or in some form of career certification program. In cooperation with Orange County High School, the Orange County Education Foundation has designated these awards for students who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in career and technical education, or for any students who plan to pursue post-graduate study in some form of technical career.

This scholarship is really a tribute to them and everything they have done for me,” said Bright. “I plan to continue my education at Longwood University where I want to study anthropology, which I first got interested in through my studies on biology right here at Orange County High School. Thanks to the American Woodmark Scholarship, I’ll be able to reach my education goals and go to college.”
