About the event
Each year we raise funds for our scholarship program by hosting the Justin Pepper 5K and during Midlands Gives. Our scholarship committee ranks ten applicants and we award them in order as funding comes in throughout the day on the firt Tuesday in May (Midlands Gives Day).
The Justin Thomas Gustav Pepper Memorial Scholarship has grown every year. Starting with two scholarships, in 2014, offered to seniors at Chapin High School, it is now open to seniors in Richland County, Newberry County and ALL Lexington County District High Schools to assist with furthering their education. The scholarship, which is focused on volunteer activities and philanthropy, rewards recipients with $1000 in assistance for furthering their education beyond high school.
