UNION COUNTY — Iris Incorporated, a local non-profit organization, awarded scholarships to three Union County High School seniors at this year’s Awards Day Ceremony.
The group has worked throughout the year to raise funds to award scholarships to seniors in Union, Spartanburg and Cherokee Counties.
“We want to help as many students as we can in this three-county area” said Mrs. Miranda W. Foster, Scholarship Chair. “We are committed to helping these deserving students as much as we possibly can.”
The recipients of this year’s Iris Education Scholarship are:
Cassidy Lea Pridemore is the daughter of Lesly Pridemore and Robbie Pridemore. She plans on attending Lander University and majoring in Nursing.
Mariana Glenn-Toland is the daughter of Dr. Tyrone Toland and Donna Glenn. She plans on attending the College of Charleston and majoring in Psychology. Her plan is to become a Clinical or Forensic Psychologist.
Ivanna Bell is the daughter of Rosa Farnacci. She plans on attending USC Upstate and majoring in Criminal Justice and minoring in music.
Iris Incorporated was established in 1989 by a small group of civic minded women who saw a need in our communities to help young people to become successful and productive citizens.
The group will continue their fundraising efforts by sponsoring their annual golf tournament at the Village Green Course on August 19. Please call Mary Foster at 864-427-4719 for any additional information on the tournament.
