Hartsville High School student among State Fair scholarships recipients
The South Carolina State Fair has named its Ride of Your Life Scholarship recipients for 2022, and one of them is Hartsville High School student Chad Hall.
The State Fair annually awards 50 scholarships to South Carolina high school students planning to pursue their studies at any public or private college, university, or technical college in the state.
The $6,000 scholarships are awarded at an annual rate of $1,500 and are based on academic and extracurricular achievement, communication skills, need, and completeness of the application.
Thanks to Circle K stores, the State Fair will award three additional scholarships this year – for a total of 53 scholarships. “We are honored and excited to reward these 53 outstanding students.” State Fair general manager Nancy Smith said. “Educating the state’s youth is a priority of the fair.”
The scholarships must be used at a public or private South Carolina college, university, or technical college and may cover tuition or other educational expenses like on-campus housing, a computer, or textbooks.
Recipients must retain a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale and enroll in no less than 30 credit hours each academic year to receive funding for that year.
