Courtney Cramblit and Caleb Bryson are this year’s recipients of the High Country Association of Realtors (HCAR) scholarship program. Previously students were asked to write an essay entitled “The Difference Between a House and a Home.” This year the challenge was to create a two-minute video on the importance of using a Realtor when buying or selling a home.
The HCAR program was recently recognized by the North Carolina Association of Realtors and received one of three Innovation Grants. That award is being used to support these scholarships. Next year High Country Realtors will offer scholarships to students in Alleghany, Ashe, Avery and Watauga counties.
Here are the 2016 winning entries.
