Broome County Urban League Awards Scholarships

Some lucky high school seniors will receive some free funds for college!

Broome County Urban League Young Professionals have awarded four Broome County seniors with scholarships. It was all part of their "I Have a Dream" scholarship gala.

The scholarship is funded by local businessman and his wife Jerry and Joanna Higgins.

Broome County Urban League President and City Council woman Leah Webb said, "This is our second year putting on the "I have a dream" scholarship gala. This gala awards four scholarships to high school seniors who are college bound and so we provide them with the scholarships to assist them in their career academic path."

Each scholarship award is $1,000 and is given twice a year once in the fall and again in the springtime.
