is sponsored by Southern Bank and The Willey Agency and proceeds will benefit the
Dare County Campus General Scholarship Fund.
Guests will be provided the opportunity to see a few of the programs at work, as there
will be student demonstrations throughout the event. Highlighted programs include,
Jewelry, Pottery, Welding, HVAC, Drone Introduction, Hospitality and Tourism, and
Culinary Arts. Artwork in the form of jewelry, sculptures, paintings and pottery, created
by COA students, alumni and instructors, will be on display in the gallery throughout the
Scholarship funds raised at this event specifically aid COA students who are Dare
County residents with a financial need. The goal for this year is to earn $10,000 in
proceeds. This amount would provide $1,000 each for ten students in the upcoming
academic year. Funds raised from the past two Dare County events allowed for a total
of ten scholarships to be awarded.
