ST. PAULS — Christina Beth Effird has been awarded a $500 scholarship from the St. Pauls Chamber of Commerce.

Effird, a 2015 graduate of St. Pauls High School, plans to attend Methodist University in Fayetteville and eventually go to medical school.

The scholarship recipients are chosen based on their volunteerism at school, church and in the community. Effird has volunteered with the N.C. Folk Arts Festival and as a server at the chamber’s annual awards banquet. She is also president of her church youth group.

She is the daughter of Carol and Charlie Effird.
