Local Premier Jewelers Support the Happily Ever After Project
Becky Scott was a local Premier Jeweler. She had a Ministry called, “A Lilly of His Valley.” Through this ministry, she spoke to many churches and women’s groups. Additionally, she was a published author and had a keen passion for literacy. When she passed away in 2011, her fellow Premier Jewelers wanted to honor her memory and legacy, so they established an annual award to recognize a local Premier Jeweler who gives back beyond her circle or community.
This year, Nancy Hattabaugh received the First Annual Becky Scott Lilly of His Valley Award. In honor of Nancy’s recognition, the local Premier Jewelers donated $150.00 to the Happily Ever After Project. The Happily Ever After Project, created by the Washington County Youth Foundation, promotes early literacy. This school year, 600 students are participating in a weekly reading program and the Youth Foundation will give away 1,800 books to participating second and third graders.
