Each year, the Wyoming County Community Fund gives back to our residents in the form of a scholarship for those wishing to continue their education. The Wyoming County Community Fund Scholarship is awarded to one Wyoming County resident each spring. The $2,500 award helps cover expenses that come with furthering their education – textbooks, supplies, and more.
This year’s awardee is Angel Lusk, a graduating senior at Westside High School. Angel will be attending Southern Community and Technical College in the fall. She hopes to study nursing, with a larger goal of becoming a Nurse Practitioner.
Maintaining an impressive overall cumulative grade point average of 3.6 throughout high school is a testament to Angel’s academic commitment. Angel’s achievements have earned her a place in both the National Honor Society and the National Technical Honor Society, and she is the Editor-in-Chief of the 2023 Westside High School Yearbook. But her determination goes beyond the classroom. On top of her responsibilities at school and dedication to her education, Angel also works full time as the assistant manager at Gino’s. Her ability to excel in both her studies and work speaks volumes about her work ethic and determination.
In her spare time, Angel is highly involved in the Wyoming County community. She actively participates in clothing drives, church bake sales, community trash pickups, and even teaches vacation bible school. She also volunteered for an active shooter drill, demonstrating courage and commitment to community safety.
Angel says that she’s seen hardship firsthand in Wyoming County and hopes to be able to give back to the community in the future.
Congratulations, Angel! We know you’ll go on to do amazing things in Wyoming County and beyond. Your future is bright!
