Suffolk Presbyterian Church, at 410 N. Broad St., administers the scholarships to serve Suffolk Public School graduates pursuing postsecondary education. The scholarship funds were established by the late Edith Volper Buttafoco in memory of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert C. Volper, and by the late Violet Volper Pond in memory of her daughter, Brenda Beamon Willis. Each scholarship will be paid over two years to the recipient’s college.
