Piney Woods School hosts scholarship fundraiser to help low-income students


PINEY WOODS, Miss. (WJTV) – The Piney Woods School announced Wednesday that up to 200 low-income students could be awarded with scholarships and tuition assistance to attend school at its campus. 

The virtual fundraising campaign will enable Piney Woods to provide students with a college preparatory education. Woodson Center and its partners will also provide 100 percent in matching funds for all donations up to $500,000. 

“We firmly believe that students – even those of limited financial means – can do extraordinary things, consistent with the opportunities that we make available to them,” says Piney Woods School President Will Crossley. “No student should be denied a Piney Woods education because of a family’s limited financial circumstances.” 

“Piney Woods’ emphasis on academic rigor and its dedication to fostering a strong work ethic in students serves as a shining example for the nation. Piney Woods graduates show us all how perseverance can overcome challenge,” said President and Founder of Woodson Center Bob Woodson.
