Local Non-Profit Unveils Foundation Established to Award Scholarships to College Students Majoring in Education
Columbia, SC — The Board of Directors announced earlier this month their plans to unveil a non-profit foundation established to award scholarships to college students majoring in Education. The Dr. Joann Boyd-Scotland Foundation was created to continue the legacy of Dr. Joann Boyd-Scotland, former President of Denmark Technical College. Dr. Boyd-Scotland dedicated her life working to meet the needs of college students for more than thirty (30) years as an administrator in higher education and fifteen (15) years as a college president. We are excited to formally introduce our foundation to the Midlands!
The Inaugural Luncheon, “Continuing a Legacy of Education, Scholarship and Service,” will take place March 3, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. at the Trinity Education Community & Conference Center on 2523 Richland Street in Columbia, S.C. The guest speaker for the event will be Dr. Roslyn Clark-Artis, President of Benedict College. A ticket for this event is $60.00 per person and sponsorships are still available at only $1,000.00 each. The Board warmly invites the public to attend. Dr. Robert Scotland, Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Foundation, is excited to share this initiative with the public. “As a retired school administrator in Richland School District 2, I understand directly the need for more certified teachers who are passionate about providing classroom instruction to our future leaders,” he said. “This effort will allow more students with that passion to achieve their goal of receiving a college degree, when it might be financially impossible otherwise,” he concluded.
This promises to be an engaging event that will celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Joann Boyd-Scotland, while highlighting the foundation’s commitment to empower future educators.
