One student has been named as the winner of the Joe Boltic-Lacy West ECU Scholarship. Brinkley Collier was selected for the $1,000 scholarship.

Collier is a 2018 graduate of West Bladen High School.  She plans to attend East Carolina University in the Fall.

Every year the Bladen County ECU Alumni Association awards a $1000 scholarship to a Bladen County Graduate who is planning to attend East Carolina University. The scholarship is in memory of Joe Bostic and Lacy West who both had untimely deaths but were great contributors to Bladen County and East Carolina University.
