This is the seventeenth year scholarships have been awarded. With the extraordinary efforts of county elected officials, county employees and corporate sponsors, the IAC Scholarship Fund went from two scholarships awarded in the first year to eight this year.  The final selection was made from a pool of 52 applicants.
