Many thanks to the Buncombe County Schools Foundation, which has awarded over $300,000 in scholarships to more than 170 graduating seniors this year.

Scholarships are a substantial part of BCSF’s mission to support students and teachers at Buncombe County Schools. The organization helps students and teachers in many other ways, including classroom grants and support of initiatives such as The Leader in Me, the Bookmobile to address summer reading loss, and the Rolling to Feed bus to help feed our students throughout the summer.

“We are so proud to play a role in helping our students achieve their goal of obtaining a college education,” said BCSF Executive Director Lisa Adkins. “Our mission is to address needs for our students in our schools through providing funds currently not available through other channels. It is because of the enormous support from the community that we are able to address those needs.”

Buncombe County Schools is in the process of reviewing its website to ensure compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Buncombe County Schools does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs or activities and is required by Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 and federal regulations to not discriminate in such a manner. This requirement extends to admission and employment. Inquiries about the application of Title IX and its implementing federal regulations may be referred to the Title IX Coordinator and/or the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights in the Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education. The Title IX Coordinator's contact information is: Shanon Martin, shanon.martin@bcsemail.org, 828-255-5918, 175 Bingham Road, Asheville, NC 28806.
