A Houston County orthodontist wants to help his patients pay for higher education.
Dr. J. Don Spillers, Jr. will be providing a $1,000 scholarship to two graduating high school seniors that are either current or former patients of Spillers Orthodontics.
The scholarship may be applied toward tuition, books, fees, or any other related expenses for the student's first year of college.
Scholarship applicants must submit the two-page application, two letters of reference, and an essay highlighting a particular person or event that has influenced your personal life and future aspirations. The essay must be 500 words or less.
The criteria for the scholarship will be based on achievement, leadership, and service throughout the high school years, along with the essay and references. These attributes can be represented through school, community, or church activities.
