Donation benefits Doc and Rosa Lee Watson Scholarship Fund
by Staff Reports
The donation benefits the Doc and Rosa Lee Watson Scholarship Fund, named after the late Doc Watson, a Grammy Award-winning bluegrass legend and High Country native.
Each year, the scholarship provides funding to a local sustainable development student with financial need during his or her junior year at ASU.
Mountain Times Publications, which served as official media sponsor for the annual MusicFest 'n Sugar Grove, raised the donated sum through sales of a Watauga Democrat special edition tribute to Watson, who died May 29.
