leaves the institution for any reason and funds of the scholarship remain, the institution is to return the
balance to EdgecombeMartin

education in another institution, any balance of the scholarship will be available for the institution of his/her
choice, subject to the same terms and condition of the original scholarship. The recipient may accept other
scholarships, but in the event the recipient receives financial assistance from other sources, which would
constitute a full scholarship, he/she shall notify EdgecombeMartin

to the Noel Lee, Jr. Memorial Scholarship. The monies shall then be awarded to the runnerup,
that person continues to meet requirements.
