Rice's Hotel / Hughlett's Tavern Gives Out Scholarships

In 2019, four seniors graduating from Northumberland High School received scholarships from Historic Rice's Hotel / Hughlett Tavern in Heathsville.

Checks were given out at Senior Recognition Recognition Night, held May 30, 2019 at the Northumberland High School. Tavern Director Corinne Becker presented each recipient with $500, which will be used for college expenses.

2019 Scholarship winners included Annie Newsome, Tahi Wiggins, Jazmine Conley and Jerry Turner III.
