Sharon C. Ryan Memorial Scholarship

Scholarship Sponsored by Twiddy & Company

Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Deadline : Jun 10, 2024

Sharon was a longtime member of the Maintenance Department at Twiddy & Company. She was employed elsewhere when she met Doug Twiddy. Doug immediately knew that she would be an essential addition to the team at Twiddy & Company. For over 19 years in the Maintenance Department, Sharon worked with the maintenance team as well as local vendors to schedule and complete services for Twiddy’s vacation homes. Through this role, Sharon got to know many local folks on the Outer Banks, as well as their families. She became a loyal friend to many, both at Twiddy & Company and in the local community. At company events, she was always the first on the dance floor, and she’d stay there throughout the party. She is warmly remembered at Twiddy & Company for her big smile and excellent work ethic.


Please carefully review the eligibility requirements before completing the application. We do not require a familiarity with the Outer Banks, but we encourage all applicants to learn about the area before applying.
