Meet Jeffery David, PCC Foundation Scholarship recipient

Down East Holiday Show funds PCC scholarships

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The Down East Holiday Show kicks off the holiday season, but it also directly funds local students’ education.

“I hurt my knee, maybe two years ago. When I got to a physical therapist, they gave me massages. Then after that, I knew that’s what I wanted to do.”

Jeffery David is one of this year’s recipients of the PCC Foundation Scholarship, funded in part by the Down East Holiday Show.

“When I got accepted into Pitt, I looked at the different scholarships that they had. The PCC Foundation one popped up.”

Jeffery’s intended career is massage therapy. After tearing his meniscus in basketball, massage therapists got him back in the game. This scholarship will help him fullfill his career goal.

“I do play basketball. That’s gonna stop one day, and I just want to be able to help people out, massaging them, getting them ready to keep playing.”

Jeffery says the scholarship will help with the cost of school, as he balances books and the ball.
