Ladies Club looking for scholarship applicants

CROSSVILLE — The Fairfield Glade Ladies Club is pleased to announce the 2014 Pam Biggs Scholarship Award program. The FGLC Scholarship Committee co-chairs are Sara Flohr and Barb Storer. Ruth Pavelchik, Jackie Wakefield, Linda Reiss, Pam Oberle, Cherie Trapp and Jane Wicker serve as committee members. This year’s scholarship program will target adult students who have been out of high school for two or more years and students at the Phoenix School. Also, students who received an award last year may apply for renewal.

The shift to a focus on adult and non-traditional students is a change from prior years and is intended to provide assistance where committee members observe the greatest need in Cumberland County. Applicants must be county residents who have been accepted to, or are already enrolled in, a degree program at an accredited college, university or technical school. Full requirements are provided on the application form.

The 2014 Pam Biggs Scholarship Award application is available for download on the Ladies Club website: and click on Scholarship. Applications have also been distributed to Roane State Community College, the College of Applied Technology Crossville and the Phoenix School. If you are an employer in the area and would like more information, please contact the group at their website link.

Applications must be postmarked no later than March 15, 2014. Members of the committee will interview each qualified candidate and complete the selection process by May 15, 2014. Since 1977, the Fairfield Glade Ladies Club has been providing scholarships to worthy students in Cumberland County. In April 2012, the Executive Board approved a resolution naming the scholarship in honor of Pam Biggs who embraced the work and goals of the Fairfield Glade Ladies Club up to her death from cancer later that same year.

For over 30 years, the FGLC has been giving back to Cumberland County. All monies earned from various Ways and Means projects are distributed locally. In addition, members donate hundreds of volunteer hours to various organizations in the county. The 500+ members of the Fairfield Glade Ladies Club are proud to support the community in every way, especially with academic and vocational scholarships.
