FLORENCE, S.C. – The Heyward L. King Sr. and Frances Cockfield King Scholarships have been established at Francis Marion University.
The scholarships were established by local businessmen Heyward L. King Jr. of W. Lee Flowers and Co. Inc. and Reamer B. King of King Cadillac-Buick-Pontiac-GMC Inc. to honor their parents and to recognize and assist outstanding students from Lake City.
The two scholarships will be endowed in the amount of $25,000 each. The amount of the scholarships will vary.
Recipients of the scholarships must be residents of Lake City. One recipient must be a graduate of the public high school in Lake City; the other recipient must be a graduate of the private high school in Lake City. Recipients must also demonstrate financial need, and the scholarships may be renewed.
“Francis Marion draws a substantial number of students from Lake City,” said FMU president Fred Carter. “The generous support of these scholarships by the King family, W. Lee Flowers, and King Cadillac will encourage Lake City’s best high school students to continue their education at FMU.”
