Committed to serving youth and promoting the value of a quality education, The Aiken Chapter of the Links, Incorporated recognized 80 students from across the Midlands, including Greenwood County, at the chapter's annual Senior Recognition Day. The purpose of the ceremony is to award scholarships to high school seniors, and celebrate students' academic, athletic, and civic achievements. Students and supportive family members filled the pews of Old Macedonia Baptist Church in North Augusta, SC to participate in this momentous occasion.

After greetings from Chapter President, Beverly Clyburn, the program proceeded with the invocation by Mrs. Doris Stephens and a musical selection by Mrs. Funmi Harmon. The speaker for the occasion was Reverend Limuer Myers, Pastor of Old Macedonia Baptist Church. During his message to the graduating seniors, Pastor Myers shared his personal educational experience of a one-room school house, where one teacher taught all students.

Although the landscape of the classroom as evolved since the days of single-room schools, the tremendous value that higher education provides and it continues to persist.

Equipped with a memorable message from the pastor, students were ready for the moment that they had anticipated. Mrs. Rosemary English and Mrs. Lavern Byrd introduced and presented students with certificates of achievement and gift bags, whose contents were donated by members of the Aiken Chapter. Of the students recognized, the following students received monetary scholarships from noted sponsors:

Alexis Fowler of Mid Carolina High School received $250.00, sponsored by Marine Corp League, and will attend Queens University of Charlotte; Allison Burrell of South Aiken High School received $500.00, sponsored by ARE, LLC, and will attend USC Columbia Honors College; Baleigh Ennis of Midland Valley High School received $500.00, sponsored by Old Macedonia Baptist Church, and will attend USC Columbia; Ben Shumpert of Aiken High School received $500.00, sponsored by Security Federal Bank, and will attend Calhoun Honors College at Clemson University; Eliza Ann Lewis of Midland Valley High School received a laptop, sponsored by SC House Representative William "Bill" Clyburn, and will attend Clemson University; Faith Corley of Wagener-Salley High School received $500.00, sponsored by Aiken County Councilman Willar H. Hightower, Jr., and will attend USC-Upstate Spartanburg; Xavier Keitt of Wagener-Salley High School received $500.00, sponsored by The Aiken Chapter of The Links, Inc., and will attend North Greenville University.

The program concluded with another musical selection and closing remarks that led to the culminating ice cream social that was sponsored by members of the Aiken Chapter. Proud parents and other relatives celebrated the graduates, who soon will walk the halls of superb academic institutions and explore beautiful campuses that will be their path to greatness. The Aiken Chapter of The Links, Inc. is proud to facilitate that journey into success.
