Piedmont Technical College recently held a Scholarship Luncheon to recognize student recipients of dozens of PTC Foundation scholarships for 2019.

This year’s winners of the Derrick Endowed Scholarship are Caleb Boatright of Greenwood, Caleb Fincannon of Saluda, Brittany Fowler of Lexington, Jonah Gonce of Ninety Six, Koramadou Heng of Greenwood, Justin McMahan of Abbeville, David Smith of Hodges, Joseph Urbanic of Greenwood, Caroline Wagler of Cross Hill, and Melissa Williamson of Troy.

Lonza/Capsugel established the Derrick Endowed Scholarship in 1988 as part of a matching gift to a Title III grant to honor then-Congressman Butler Derrick. Scholarships are available to students having a minimum 3.0 GPA who are completing their first year of study in an associate degree program.
