The board of the Captain Cliff Memorial is proud to announce that it would like to continue the Captain Richard G. Cliff Memorial Scholarship for up to four outstanding students at Wando High School.
These four scholarships will each be a one time $1,500 scholarship designated for a graduating senior from Wando High School upon acceptance and enrollment in a four year university. It is the desire of the committee for the graduating senior to meet the following requirements:
• Citizen of the United States
• Graduating senior of Wando High School, and while GPA is important, it will not be the determining factor for this scholarship
• Be attending a four year university or college and provide proof of enrollment
The Captain Richard G. Cliff Memorial Scholarship Committee, which will determine the recipients of who receive the award, will consider all provided achievements, activities, honors, characteristics and other information. All information that is outlined in the application is focused on defining the applicants’ position in the community, future goals and past honors to determine the best fit for these scholarships.
There will be no bias towards the location of the university to be attended
Any additional information is welcomed.
Candidates for this scholarship are to complete the enclosed application and address it to:
Captain Richard G. Cliff Memorial Scholarship Committee
c/o Sheila Sparks or Lauren Hatley
Captain Cliff Memorial
948 Lansing Drive
Mount Pleasant, S.C. 29464
Please enclose a recommendation from a teacher or counselor, a signed copy of the student’s transcript, the application, and a short essay (500 words or less) explaining why you feel that you deserve this scholarship. Please have all submissions in by May 15. The finalists may be interviewed, and selections will be determined by Senior Day.
If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to call Adam King at 330-8333, we look forward to hearing from you.
If you know a deserving graduating senior at Wando High School please forward this announcement and application for the Captain Cliff Memorial Scholarship to them so they may apply for one of the four $1500 college scholarships to be awarded at the Senior Awards Day Ceremony on May 22nd this year.
The funds for this scholarship are raised at the Captain Cliff Memorial Golf Tournament and Social in Mount Pleasant each November around Veterans Day. This year the evening Social, Oyster Roast and Auction will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7, and the Memorial Golf Tournament will be on Friday, Nov. 8. The event also donates to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
