An Emory & Henry College accounting student from Galax, Va., has been awarded a scholarship recognizing her academic achievement within a liberal arts setting.

Kim Caudill, a graduate of Carroll County High School, received the 2011-12 Norfolk Southern Scholarship, which is administered by the Virginia Foundation of Independent Colleges (VFIC). The scholarship is made possible by generous gifts from Norfolk Southern, one of the nation's premier transportation companies

A Prestigious Scholarship

The annual scholarship is awarded to a full-time student at one of the 15 private colleges and universities associated with the VFIC. To win the award, Caudill participated in an essay contest among students with declared majors in economics, business, finance or accounting.

This prestigious award provides $10,000 in scholarship funding - $5,000 for each student's junior year and an additional $5,000 for their senior year, contingent on continuing to meet or exceed the original scholarship requirements.
