posted 05/30/2017 by HTC
For the eleventh year, Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union and Horry Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (HTC) chose two graduating high school seniors to win $1,000 each in scholarship awards. High school seniors from Horry, Georgetown, Marion, Williamsburg, and the southern part of Florence County planning to attend either Coastal Carolina University or Francis Marion University were encouraged to apply.
The 2017 Key Scholarship award winners are: North Myrtle Beach High School graduate, Cameron Parker and Aynor High School graduate, Brittany Hartley. This fall, Parker plans to attend Coastal Carolina University and major in English and Communications, and Hartley plans to attend Coastal Carolina University and major in Marine Science.
“These exceptional students have juggled academics, part-time jobs and extracurricular or volunteer activities successfully,” explained Nicole Hyman, HTC Senior Marketing Coordinator.
Each winner receives $1,000 applied to the cost of first-year tuition. The scholarships may be renewed for an additional three years in the amount of $500 per year should the recipients continue to meet qualifying criteria, which include maintaining a 3.00 GPA and full-time enrollment at either CCU or FMU.
Application packets were distributed to high school guidance counselors and the scholarship opportunities were advertised on the Carolina Trust and HTC websites. The 2017 award recipients were scored as most qualified for the Key Scholarship based on completed application, academics, school and/or community involvement, household income, and school choice.
According to Amanda Marker, Carolina Trust Marketing Director, “These awards are well deserved, and we’re proud of all the applicants who are planning to continue their education in an effort to achieve personal and professional goals.”
