Each year the ECW awards scholarships for higher education. This year we were able to give two scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each.
Competition for the awards was fierce, and in the end our committee selected Nicole Rauppius of the Church of Our Savior, Rock Hill, and Lillian Hardaway of Grace Church, Anderson, as our winners. Nicole will attend Wofford College in the fall and plans on studying either Mathematics or Education. Lillian will be in her second year of studies at Clemson University and is majoring in Language and International Health with an emphasis on Spanish and Community Development.
The committee selected these winners based on academic performance, community and parish involvement, and financial need. We had some very qualified applicants, but these two young ladies best demonstrated strong performance in each area.
Donations can be made year-round to the Bena Dial Scholarship fund. These scholarships are awarded annually based on the money raised in the previous year.
