Education is the Key to Progress
Every year, it opens a window of opportunity for thousands of young people and paves the way for positive change in our world. It is a part of what makes America so successful, and Bill Beazley Homes is proud to be a small part of that success.
Last month, The Columbia County Foundation For Children awarded seventeen scholarships to Columbia County students for the 2014-2015 academic year. Nine of the recipients were first time winners while eight were sequential winners who applied for renewals. The foundation was able to allocate over $20,000 dollars to the students and help relieve some of the financial burdens many of them faced.
