Johnston County Early College

PTSA Scholarship Fund

245 College Rd

Smithfield, NC 27577 

Dear Business Manager/Owner/etc.:


Greetings from Johnston County Early College Academy.  JC Early College Academy has the primary mission to recruit and support 1st generation college-bound students from all over Johnston County with a focus on communities along the I-95 corridor.  JC Early College Academy is a 5-year program that allows its students to earn their High School Diploma and have the opportunity to earn their Associates Degree from Johnston Community College.  The Academy gives opportunities for numerous students to attend universities and colleges throughout the state that may have been difficult to achieve otherwise.   

 In order to meet the needs of our students and to create relationships with individual, business, and corporate partners, we are asking for scholarship donations that will help to further fund our student’s education.  We have been blessed with the Cockrell family being able to donate a scholarship for several years in the past.  During the 2019-2020 school year, The Academy was able to establish a Parent Teacher Student Association(PTSA).  The PTSA was very successful our first year with fundraising and was able to provide two additional student scholarships.  We are hoping you can assist with this annual tradition to help provide financial assistance for our exceptional students.  No donation is too small or too big.  Please join us by supporting our community students in furthering their education and becoming productive citizens. 

Should you have questions about the Johnston County Early College Academy Scholarship Fund please contact Mrs. Tracy Barbour  Please have all donations submitted by April 23, 2021.  We would like to have our donation campaign completed by April 23, 2021, in an effort to process the scholarships for release by the graduation.   Also, consider an annual donation commitment by checking the bottom of the letter.

Thank you for your consideration, 

Haywood E. Spruill
