In all, $20,000 was awarded to nine high school and eight college students.

Volunteers from Belvoir Spouses’ Club spent 700 hours wrapping gifts for donations at Springfield Town Center throughout December, to raise money for the scholarships. 

“This is my favorite day, when we give away all our money,” said Becky Sisemore, president of The Belvoir Spouses’ Club.

The money, $20,000 in all, was awarded to students of Fort Belvoir families, during a ceremony at Woodlawn Community Center, April 9. Scholarship checks were given to 17 students: eight attending college and nine high school students enrolling in college in the fall.
