Harris Funeral Home is celebrating 28 years of serving the community by assisting outstanding local students. The Harris Funeral Home Memorial Scholarship program, now in its 19th year, helps students reach their educational goals.

Each recipient is awarded a $500 scholarship to be applied toward any education-related cost, as is chosen by Cornelia Johnson, Teresa Smith and Harriet Billups of the Harris Funeral Home Scholarship Committee.

To date, more than $55,000 have been awarded to area students. This year’s three recipients are:
