WBC Introduces Randolph County Scholarship


Students at Randolph County high schools have new incentive to attend Williams Baptist College when they graduate. Williams has announced the launch of its Randolph County Scholarship, which takes effect with this year’s high school seniors.

"The Randolph County Scholarship makes a high quality, Christian college education very affordable for qualifying students from Pocahontas and Maynard High Schools," said WBC Director of Admissions Andrew Watson. "When this is combined with the Arkansas Challenge Scholarship and other college financing options, the out-of-pocket cost for students to attend Williams is minimal."

Randolph County high school students with an ACT composite score from 19 to 25 can receive $2,000 per semester, while those with an ACT of 26 or above can get $3,000 per semester through the scholarship.

To qualify, students must attend and graduate from a Randolph County high school, have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 and an ACT composite score of 19 or above. They also must apply for admission to WBC by May 1, 2013, to receive the scholarship next fall.

"Williams emphasizes academic excellence in a caring, Christian environment. We also offer 25 majors to prepare students for a wide array of career options. It’s an outstanding college option, and it is close to home for Randolph County students," Watson said.

Williams is a four-year, liberal arts college at Walnut Ridge.
