Now, six top graduating seniors from the Low Country, and Grand Strand areas of South Carolina have an easier road to further their education and follow their dreams. The firm, which awarded each student with a $2,000 scholarship prize, began the program in 2006 and has provided $60,000 in scholarship funds to area students.
