The NaphCare Charitable Foundation aims to support local communities across the country by providing outstanding students with the opportunity to pursue their goals through higher education. Since its inception in 2011, the Foundation has awarded and funded over 300 scholarships exceeding $2.4 million to high school students who demonstrate an aptitude for success.

Sixty-one students selected from schools in Alabama, Kentucky and Mississippi were awarded scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year. Recipients were chosen based on their potential to grow into future leaders within their communities and beyond.

“We are honored to pour back into these local communities by supporting their future leaders,” said Deanna Newton, Executive Director of The NaphCare Charitable Foundation. “We look forward to watching them succeed in the coming school year and throughout their education.”

The NaphCare Charitable Foundation strives to enable and encourage future leaders and agents of change within local communities. The Selection Committees announced eight Birmingham area students, commemorated as Tommy Ward Memorial Scholarships for Vestavia Hills High School graduates, as recipients of the 2020 NaphCare Charitable Foundation Scholarship. Students in Kentucky, Mississippi and other parts of Alabama were also honored.
