The South Carolina Association of Counties (SCAC) has awarded a 2020 Board of Directors Scholarship to K’sheauna T. Singleton of Ridgeland-Hardeeville High School.
Each year, SCAC awards four $2,500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are residents of counties chosen by lot, and Jasper County was selected in the 2020 draw. Applicants must plan to attend a South Carolina college/university or two-year technical college in the fall.
Singleton is the daughter Showanna Hugue and Lovie Singleton Jr. of Ridgeland. A member of the National Honor Society, she is ranked second in her class and plans to study early childhood education at the University of South Carolina–Columbia. Singleton is a participant in the Reverend Pinckney College Readiness Program, as well as the AVID program for college/career readiness. She is a trained AVID tutor and has volunteered by working with elementary school students.
SCAC’s Scholarship Selection Committee met in the spring to evaluate applicants for this award. Applicants must submit an application form and write an essay on their aspirations and goals. The selection is based on the essay, grades, school activities, and community involvement.
