Rocky Mount NC – Annual banquet to recognize student, employee and employer

Rocky Mount, N.C-The Mayor’s Commission on Persons with Disabilities will award a college scholarship to a deserving student in addition to recognizing an Employee and Employer of the Year at its annual banquet at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 6 in the Booker T. Theater.

The Curtis Dew, Jr. Advance Educational Studies Scholarship of $300 will be awarded to a graduating high school student with a disability who will be attending college in the fall.

During the academic year, the Human Relations Department, in conjunction with The Bowling Center of Rocky Mount and the North Carolina Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, held a bowling night fundraiser for the scholarship.  

“The banquet highlights and recognizes many in our community that often do the work, make the grades or provide opportunities but go unrecognized or unrewarded,” said Jeffery Walston, Human Relations specialist with the city of Rocky Mount. “This event shows everyone that we are all the same regardless of the difficulties or obstacles we’ve overcome.” 

For more information, please call the Human Relations Department at 252-972-1181.
