Dear Carolina Community,
There are a lot of exciting things happening with the scholarship over the coming months. We have formed a partnership with the Carolina Center for Public Service for our application process and the Selection Committee is hard at work choosing finalists for the scholarship.
The month of November is always an exciting time for the scholarship. Coming up this Friday, October 25th is the annual Thriller in the Pit. The dance team will teach the choreography of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to the student body beforehand then the group dance will begin at 11:50am during the class change. This event is always very entertaining and special guests might include V.C. Crisp and Chancellor Folt.
Additionally, the annual Eve Carson Memorial 5K for Education will be held on November 16th this year. Last year, the event raised over $52,000 for the scholarship, First Book, and CEO 4 Teens. For more information, please visit educationforeve.com.
The Executive Committee is working around the clock to plan events, publicize them, and ensure the legacy of the Eve Carson Scholarship. If you would like to partner with us on an event, please contact me anytime. We look forward to an exciting month for the scholarship and two new scholars by the end of the semester!
In the Carolina Way,
