Video: Masons Hosts 1st Annual Scholarship Banquet

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – As the cost of a college education continues to rise, paying for it can be challenging for most families.

So the folks at the Columbus Masonic Lodge hosted a scholarship fundraiser this weekend for local students.

Funds raised at the 1st Annual Black and White Scholarship Banquet will benefit at least three deserving students from the area.

The event was held at the American Legion Post with performances by the Columbus High Show Choir and the Mime and Dance team.

Organizers say this is just one of the ways they’re helping the next generation have a brighter future.

The Columbus chapter of the Masons has been serving the community since 1991.

If you’d like to donate to the scholarship fund, call 662) 889-9086 or email: asymbolflightlodge_342@yahoo.com.
