Scholarship: The Iredell County Extension and Community Association has awarded a $500 scholarship to Beau D. Bennett. He is the son of Dawn A. Bennett of Mooresville.
Bennett graduated from Mooresville High School in June. He will attend Western Carolina University and plans to major in environmental conversation and expressive sculpture/unconventional materials.
Giving back: Visit Lake Norman, the convention and visitors bureau for Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville, and its Lake Norman hotel partners have created a voluntourism initiative. The idea originated from a Hotel Power Hour meeting where John Lynch, general manager for the Hampton Inn & Suites Huntersville told the story of Angels & Sparrows Soup Kitchen’s need for bottled water for their bagged lunch program. Area hotels have donated 70-plus cases of bottled water so far. Donations were made by the Comfort Suites Huntersville, Country Suites Huntersville, Courtyard Huntersville, Hampton Inn Cornelius, Hampton Inn & Suites Huntersville, Homewood Suites Davidson and VLN.
VLN is offering anyone a free Lake Norman coffee mug for every case of water dropped off at the Visitor Center, West Catawba Avenue, Cornelius.
