Caitlyn's Scholarship Fund
Organized by: Polly Foster
Caitlyn is an amazing young woman. Always smiling and caring and loving. Everyone she meets loves her and she has a heart of gold. When she was in high school she became very committed to helping raise money towards local children's charities and she and her friends helped raise over $400,000 in that 4 years. She was a regional scholarship winner for Kohl's Cares for Kids contest.
The last two years have been financially tough for the family and she has successfully completed 2 years at USC Upstate and has been accepted as a transfer student to USC Columbia her dream school.
Her Mother lost her job in March unexpectedly and is now working but not at the salary she was making. We have downsized and cut all expenses necessary to help with the transition.
Caitlyn LOVES the University of South Carolina in Columbia and is a die hard Gamecock fan. She loves USC Football and will major in Public Relations. She also has an amazing voice and will minor in music.
Caitlyn made the Dean's list at USC Upstate this past semester with a 3.5 GPA and has an overall GPA of 3.0 transferring to USC Columbia. Unfortunately she was just 3 credits shy of earning the LIFE Scholarship this year which would have been $5000 to cover her housing, meals and books for the year.
