The Friends of the South Congaree-Pine Ridge Library honor Carol B. Clark, the first branch librarian manager, by naming this scholarship in her honor. Carol has served as the Branch Manager since the library opened on July 19, 2007. Carol’s enthusiasm is so very evident in all that she does for the patrons in planning programs and events for all ages that naming this scholarship after her was inevitable. In Spring of 2020, Carol was presented the 2020 Public Library Employee Excellence Award by The Friends of South Carolina Libraries.
The Friends are offering two (2) scholarships: one for a senior from Airport High School and one for a senior from White Knoll High School. The funds may be used for post-secondary education expenses. The Friends of the South Congaree-Pine Ridge Library shall review all applications and shall have full authority to grant the scholarship.
The application process opens on December 15, 2020. Deadline for completed applications is March 1, 2021. The scholarship will be award to the winners at the April 2021 meeting of the Friends of the South Congaree-Pine Ridge Library.
