Announcing the 2017 James and Nellie Butler Scholarship

The Albemarle County Democratic Party is pleased to offer four $500 scholarships in the names of James R. and Nellie M. Butler to honor their contributions to the community, particularly their support of public education and their dedication to public service. The annual scholarships will be awarded to one Albemarle County public high school senior at each of the County high schools, who is planning to attend college and has demonstrated a determination to contribute to his or her community as the Butlers have done. Applicants are judged on the basis of their academic record, their commitment to public service, and financial need.

Since the creation of these scholarships by the Albemarle County Democratic Party to honor James and Nellie Butler, we have provided over $20,000 to county high school students to help defray some of the costs of college.
