It was a sold-out crowd of 550 attendees as the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria celebrated the success of more than 160 scholarship recipients from the T.C. Williams class of 2019.
Held April 27 at the Hilton Mark Center, the SFA annual gala recognized this year’s recipients, including Amaiya Howard, who was awarded the Madelyn Anderson Memorial Scholarship of $40,000 over four-years.
Since 1986, SFA has provided financial aid to thousands of Alexandria students and their families and awarded scholarships with a total value over $5.5 million to more than 2,900 T.C. Williams graduates.
The Spring gala serves as SFA’s signature event, honoring the achievements of past scholarship recipients and raises funds to help send local T.C. Williams High School students with financial need to college.
Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Gregory Hutchings is a T.C. Williams graduate and 1995 Scholarship Fund of Alexandria recipient.
“I am a scholarship recipient, and it changed the trajectory of my life,” said Hutchings.
