Brookneal, VA – Foster Fuels awards local students scholarships for higher education as part of their celebration of a century in business and FosterGives campaign. To say thanks to their loyal customers, Foster Fuels partnered with the Watt Foster Family Foundation to offer 100 scholarships to customers and their dependents seeking to attend a two-year school, four-year school, or trade school.  

 

“We wanted to do something big for our 100th anniversary to thank our customers and to thank our community”, said Jennifer Bryant Foster, Vice President at Foster Fuels and Trustee of the Watt Foster Family Foundation. “Without them, we wouldn’t be here.”  

 

The students receiving the scholarships make up a diverse group that is bright and driven. They aspire to go into or are currently enrolled in a wide range of studies including, Nursing, Accounting, Architecture, Law, Engineering and HVAC Advanced Career studies. Some are aiming to be future teachers of music and agriculture. Others want careers in cybersecurity, film and television, and even to become pilots in the United States Air Force and astronauts working in the aerospace industry.  

 

Foster Fuels is sending a letter to each awardee notifying them of their winnings. The scholarships will be sent directly to the students’ chosen education institutions. Most students plan to attend and receive their higher education at local Virginia colleges and universities.  

 

A focus of the FosterGives campaign and the foundation is to support education in the community. “Education is the basis for everything,” said Katie Foster Rolfe, Payroll Manager at Foster Fuels and Trustee of the Watt Foster Family Foundation. “I’m thankful that we can award hard-working students’ scholarships to receive their education.” 

 

FosterGives is delivering more positive impact to the area this year, including their annual Spread the Warmth coat drive event. In 2020, the event produced over 900 coats that were donated to local schools and organizations.  

 

Foster Fuels believes that when our community succeeds, we succeed. Since opening its doors in 1921, the Foster team has sought ways to invest in the future of its community. We look forward to these scholarships making an impact on the future through the students of today.
