JAMES CITY-Chesapeake Bank will once again sponsor a college scholarship through Williamsburg Community Foundation’s WJCC Scholarship Fund.

This year’s $1,000 scholarship will go to a student enrolled at one of the three high schools in the Williamsburg-James City County (WJCC) School Division who is interested in pursuing a career in banking or financial services.

The WJCC Scholarship Fund is a community-wide effort to recognize the accomplishments of local students and help families afford higher education.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
