Greenspring Village recently awarded 32 student dining services employees scholarships of $10,000 each, and was recognized for this achievement at a recent Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting.
“Looking over many of the things they’ve done, you can’t help but have this one jump out and grab you,” Supervisor Jeff McKay (D-Lee District) said at the July 29 Board of Supervisors meeting. “This is a huge commitment on behalf of Greenspring.”
The 32 students have worked at least 1,000 hours at Greenspring, and have maintained satisfactory grades and a clean discipline record.
“When you look at the philanthropy efforts across the county, we are really blessed with resources and a lot of times we forgot those who may not be. This is an opportunity for us to give to tomorrow’s leaders. It is remarkable,” McKay said.
All of the scholarship recipients are attending college or trade school in the fall. Several of the recipients attended West Springfield High School, Hayfield Secondary School, South Co

“This year, more student employees received scholarships from Greenspring than any year since the program began in 1999,” said Jean Landreville, executive director of Greenspring.
Sharon Bulova, chairman of the Board of Supervisors, called Greenspring a “special place.”
“It’s a really active community and this program is just exceptional,” Bulova said. “Thank you to the residents to help encourage our young people and to open doors for them.
