LBW Community College is proud to continue partnerships to enhance economic development opportunities, provide workforce training, and grow future leaders in our communities.

The LBW Community College Foundation had 88 golfers participate in the 17th Annual Camellia City Classic at the Robert Trent Jones Cambrian Ridge Golf Trail on Wednesday, Nov. 2. Over $30,000 was raised to support scholarships and dual enrollment incentives for students.

The Covington County Economic Development Commission took home first place with players Jacob Morgan, Jordan Maynor, Brett Mack, and Brent Worrell.

Players Shannon Batesole, Kyle Harris, Scott Jackson, and Brian Scott placed second for Huhtamaki.

Longest drive winners were Levi Wilburn and Brett Mack. The closest to the pin winner was Jim Richburg.

The Lurleen B. Wallace Community College (LBWCC) Foundation was formed in 1970 with the purpose of promoting and supporting the programs and activities of Lurleen B. Wallace Community College and the students of Butler, Covington, Crenshaw, and surrounding counties.

A volunteer board of directors composed of local citizens governs all aspects of the foundation, including fundraising, investments, and scholarship distributions.

Directors of the LBWCC Foundation are dedicated to providing leadership with integrity for the preservation of endowments, growth of investments, and aiding the financial needs of students attending LBWCC.

By providing scholarships, the LBWCC Foundation can make a difference in whether or not a student can attend and/or complete a degree or certificate program of study.

The annual deadline for scholarship applications is usually around the first of March. Apply for foundation scholarships through the online institutional scholarship application packet found at from January until the deadline each year. LBWCC Foundation scholarships apply to both traditional and nontraditional students (those who are 21 years of age or older, obtained a GED, or graduated from high school more than one year ago).
