Class of 1972 deserves thanks

-A A +A

To the editor:
The July 25, 2012, edition of The Anderson News reported that the Anderson County High School class of 1972, during its recent 40-year reunion, raised $850 in contributions to the Anderson County Scholarship Fund.
As administrator of the fund, I wish to express my sincere appreciation for this unexpected and unprecedented effort.
These donations will go into the principal of the fund, which has awarded (including the awards for the 2012-2013 academic year), from its inception in 1978, $1,920,342 in scholarship money to Anderson County residents attending a school of their choice.
Again, thanks to the ACHS class of 1972.
