DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A faith-based organization distributed $20,000 in college scholarship money to 17 graduating high school seniors across several Wiregrass counties Tuesday.

The Dothan-based Christian Brothers Network looks for those young people who excel both academically and volunteer to help those in need.

“We look at ACT scores, volunteer efforts, GPA, as well as community involvement,” Darious Mckay said. 

Organizers of the event say it’s important to accentuate the positivity in young people in the Wiregrass area.
