The Drum and Wilkinson families have called Catawba County, North Carolina their home since the 1700's. The intermarriage between these clans represent one of the first amalgamations between English and German settlers in this area. Together, they have forged a strong bond and have done much to make Catawba County richer for their presence. Their civic pride is evident in their sponsorship of scholorships for worthy students.
Currently, The Drum-Wilkinson Foundation is awarding five scholarships to qualified student applicants for the 2007-2008 academic year in the amount of $500 each. Every qualified applicant is given consideration for a scholarship. You may pick up an application in the Financial Aid Office in Student Services. The application must be submitted to the address on the application and has to be received by Friday, March 30, 2007, by 5:00pm.
