Town of Springdale establishes MTC scholarship for Springdale residents
Springdale, SC (Paul Kirby) – Springdale’s mayor Michael Bishop and the town council have established a scholarship to support town residents who wish to continue their education at Midlands Technical College. Mayor Bishop said in one of his recent newsletters that the town’s leaders feel this is a great way to give back to their community.
The scholarship(s) will be awarded annually to a Springdale resident or residents who wish to attend MTC. That school’s Airport campus borders the town.
Bishop said in the newsletter, “I am a huge fan of MTC and what they are doing! Unfortunately, there are people within our community who aren’t attending college over the lack of a few hundred dollars. We need to come together and invest in our community’s future.”
The council hopes that establishing this scholarship will inspire others to consider a donation to this worthwhile endeavor. He pointed out that donations are tax deductible and can be anonymous if you like as well.
