William Penn Harrison Scholarship Fund (2014)
William Penn Harrison Scholarship Fund was established with donations from Wilson Elementary School alumni and friends in memory of William Penn Harrison, who was a distinguished educator and principal of this historic school in Clarendon County, South Carolina.
The Wilson Elementary School Committee is committed to raising money for the Scholarship Fund to help meet critical scholarship needs and serve the present age. Obtaining a quality and affordable college education in today’s economy is increasingly difficult.
Most fundraising is done at an annual gala on the Friday after Thanksgiving when alumni and friends from all over the national return to the Manning area to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Annually, the WES Committee will award a scholarship from available funds to deserving student (s) based on financial need, academic achievement, leadership and work ethic.
