    The Beaufort County Community College Foundation is proud to announce the following scholarship recipients for the Fall 2021 semester. Registration is still open for 14-week classes and 8-week Late Start classes. While the Beaufort Promise covers all tuition and fees through May 2023, students can apply for scholarships to cover the cost of textbooks.

Dr. Nancy Boylan Alford was the owner and operator of Carriage House Psychological Associates in Roanoke Rapids. Dr. Alford and her husband Reverend John B. Alford Jr. spent 57 years together.
