About the event
Midlands Gives is a great opportnity for us to showcase our scholarship winners and raise additional funding to provide scholarships.
Each year we raise funds for our scholarship program through our 5K and during Midlands Gives. Our scholarship committee ranks ten applicants and we award them in order with funds from the Justin Pepper 5K and as funding comes in throughout the day on the first 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 Lexington Country, Newberry County, and Richland County 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.
