Kathy Elsner

Kathy Elsner, founding YEScarolina board member and fearless ringleader of the annual gala fundraiser, passed away Dec. 8, 2013 at the age of 42. She did more in her life than most will ever do. The annual “Kathy Elsner Spirit Scholarship” will cement her legacy and forever remind us of Kathy’s selfless dedication and persistence in creating something that no one else thought possible. “She was the strongest, kindest, most fun loving, and loyal friend a person could have,” said YEScarolina President Jimmy Bailey.

This scholarship will be awarded annually at the Gala in Kathy’s honor to a YEScarolina student that demonstrates the persistent, focused, and enthusiastic spirit that Kathy so richly demonstrated in creating the gala and serving on the Board. This annual scholarship will help a YEScarolina student attend college, gain a first class education, and pursue the life of their dreams.

The first scholarship is for the academic year 2014 - 2015. To qualify for this scholarship you must be a female alumna of YEScarolina. The scholarship is in the amount of $2,500. Applications are due by March 31, 2014. Online applications are available.

Kathy’s selfless sacrifice made all the difference. For generations ahead, students, teachers, and members of the community will come together every fall to celebrate youth entrepreneurship and raise money to keep our vital programs alive.

Donations are being accepted for the Kathy Elsner Spirit Scholarship Fund. Donate online or mail a contribution to PO Box 210 Charleston, SC 29402.
