The FCPS Marketing Advisory Board is a committee of local business people who assist FCPS in curriculum development for the marketing program and who encourage and recognize excellence in student achievement. The Marketing Advisory Board sponsors an annual scholarship program for high school students wishing to pursue marketing studies in college. Over the past 13 years, over $214,000 was distributed to qualified high school seniors through the scholarship program. In addition, funds may also be used to recognize student accomplishments and achievements as well as support other student activities as needed.
