The class of 2020 is a resilient group of students! They finished their senior year at the start of a pandemic, which delayed high school graduation. Not to mention, most of them are beginning their freshman year of college virtually. It is important for us to celebrate and recognize our students for their efforts, so we took our celebration virtually. On July 30, 2020 FFLV hosted our first Scholarship Celebration via Facebook Live.
During the event we recognized all 153 of our recipients by highlighting the college or university they will be attending. There were a total of 80 people in attendance during the livestream and over 150 scholarship recipients announced.

The 2020 cohort has been awarded a total of $204,000 for the 2020-2021 academic year. The FFLV scholarship is renewable and recipients can receive a maximum of $6,000 in total.
Dreylon Madison was also announced as the inaugural Scott Carlovsky Scholarship recipient. The scholarship is in partnership with Outdoor Solutions to honor its former owner and will be awarding a $25,000 scholarship to Dreylon who will be attending University of Nevada, Reno in the fall.
All of the scholarship recipients will continue to receive post-secondary resources including access to College Success Advisors, skill building and networking events hosted by FFLV.
Congratulations FFLV scholars and thank you to all of our sponsors for making moments like this possible!
