ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria has received the largest gift in its 30-year history from Alexandria-based Henry Knox Field Lodge No. 349, a local Masonic Lodge. Henry Knox Field Lodge has generously donated $600,000 to support college scholarships for local Alexandria students in need. The gift is expected to help send 40 local children to college over the next two decades. Each year, this gift will support two $15,000 scholarships for two students from T. C. Williams High School.

Henry Knox Field Lodge awarded the gift during a dinner, attended by Interim Superintendent Dr. Lois F. Berlin, Alexandria Mayor Allison Silberberg, members of the Alexandria City School Board and members of the City Council at the Scottish Rite Temple in Alexandria.

"We are offering our financial support to the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria to invest in our local community and in Alexandria’s future,” said Brian King, Worshipful Master. "Our gift is intended to help local Alexandria kids who have the grades, grit and determination, but not the financial means, to attend college. The Scholarship Fund has a proven track record over the past 30 years of helping to change the lives of Alexandria’s neediest students for the better. We are proud to be able to help local students achieve their college goals.”
