Family Trust Federal Credit Union recently awarded two $500 Martin Luther King Jr. scholarships to Clinton College students Temekia Boler of McConnells and Rosalind Wilson of Rock Hill.
Boler plans to graduate in December 2016 with a bachelors degree in Business Administration and Religious Studies. She’s active with the Clinton College Ensemble and sings Alto. She’s also employed with Rock Hill School District and a mother of five.
“The professors at Clinton College strive to give relevant information that will help push me in my chosen field of study. They’ve offered extra help and encouragement when needed and that makes my quest for a dual bachelor’s degree attainable,” she said.
Wilson plans to graduate in December 2016 with a bachelor degree in Religious Studies. A full-time pastor at Greater Life Ministries in Rock Hill, Wilson spends much of her time helping others. Wilson, also a 20-year cancer survivor, uses her story to inspire others.
“The decision to enroll at Clinton College has been one of the best decisions of my life,” she said. “I have learned so much regarding the business aspect of religion and running a church. I have obtained the skills to take a strategic approach to organizing events, managing budgets, establishing organizations and building long-term strategic plans.
Both plan to purchase textbooks and save the funds for other educational expenses.
Family Trust has awarded $16,000 since the scholarship was created in 2000.
