Cole Blackman received a $500 scholarship awarded by the chamber. Sarah Ledford received a $500 scholarship awarded by the North Carolina Community Foundation and Madison County Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber leaders say the two were selected because of their academic performance, involvement in extracurricular activities, and leadership ability.
