Nora Pannill Brooking Scholarship
The Nora Pannill Brooking Scholarship Fund provides a one-year $2,000 award to an Orange County High School graduate who has demonstrated dedication to lifelong learning in a specific field or area of study. Applicants must plan to attend community college, trade school, nursing school, business school or another trade-focused institution. They must demonstrate financial need and must maintain at least a “B” average in their classes. Awards may be applied to tuition and fees associated with the recipient’s educational program.
The Nora Pannill Brooking Scholarship, in the amount of $2,000, was awarded by OCEF Board President Bryan Hargett to Tiahna Mack. “This scholarship will help me with tuition and books at Piedmont Community College,” Mack said. “I plan to get my Associates Degree there before moving on the Radford University to study nursing.”

Kourtney Monroe received the Nora Pannill Brooking Scholarship from Bryan Hargett, OCEF Board member, during the Orange County High School Senior Awards Night program on June 4, 2012. “I was very surprised when I heard my name called,” said Monroe. “Getting the scholarship proved to me that hard work really does pay off. I’m very grateful and thankful for this scholarship. I plan to go to Germanna Community College and I know the scholarship will come in handy for books and Security Plus and Ethical Hacker certifications, all things that I need to be a successful college student.”
