Nash Community College has announced a recent contribution by the DeLeon Carter Foundation to support the Myrtle Carter Henry Scholarship. Established in 2015 by the DeLeon Carter Foundation, the scholarship honors the memory of Myrtle Carter Henry. In 2018, the DeLeon Carter Foundation renamed the scholarship as the Myrtle Carter Henry Veterinary Technology Scholarship. The scholarship is available to students enrolled in the Nash Community College Veterinary Medical Technology program. Since its partnership began in 2001 with the College, the DeLeon Carter Foundation Board of Directors has made an impact on the Nash/Rocky Mount area on campus with the Myrtle Carter Henry Amphitheater, a fountain, and the digital marquee.
