Did you know that Twiddy & Company offers two scholarship opportunities? As a family-owned and operated company, we are pleased to have the opportunity to financially assist students with their higher education goals. Our scholarships are geared toward college students studying Hospitality Management, Data Analytics, Business, Hospitality, Statistics, Engineering, or Marketing. We have two opportunities available: the Candis R. Richardson Memorial Scholarship and the Sharon C. Ryan Memorial Scholarship. Each opportunity was created to honor former Twiddy & Company employees. Candis R. Richardson Memorial Scholarship Candis was a valued member of Twiddy & Company’s Guest Services team. She was well known around the company for always having a positive attitude. Her career at Twiddy began in the midst of Tropical Storm Ernesto. Although the storm was not forecast to have much of an impact on the Outer Banks, it packed a punch, flooding our area with about a foot of rain. Candis’ friendly demeanor and ability to remain calm helped put our frantic guests at ease during a stressful situation. Created for local students enrolled at College of the Albemarle, eligibility requirements and applications are processed by the College of the Albemarle Foundation. Sharon C. Ryan Memorial Scholarship A longtime member of Twiddy & Company’s Maintenance team, Sharon was well-known to locals throughout the Outer Banks. Her role in coordinating Twiddy’s in-house Maintenance team as well as local vendors for 19+ years allowed her to get to know many OBX locals and their families. Sharon’s excellent work ethic and loyal friendship to many made her an essential member of the Twiddy team. The Sharon C. Ryan Memorial Scholarship is awarded twice per year, and the recipients are chosen by a group of Twiddy employees. We truly appreciate all that apply for this scholarship, and we enjoy learning about each applicant and reading their personal story. The Sharon C. Ryan Memorial Scholarship recipient for the Fall 2020 semester is Elizabeth Neilson, a rising senior at the University of Florida. Congratulations, Elizabeth, we wish you all the best! Apply for the Spring of 2021 We are currently accepting applications for the Sharon C. Ryan Memorial Scholarship for the spring 2021 semester.
