The Sharonda Coleman Memorial Scholarship Fund: Remembering Sharonda
The SCSHA Board has established a scholarship to pay homage to a member of our SLP family who was one of nine victims in the tragedy at Emanuel AME Church. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton was a speech-language pathologist at Goose Creek High School since 2007 and was known as a "fierce advocate" for her students. As recognition of the wonderful impact of Sharonda to many in her community, SCSHA has established the Sharonda Coleman-Singleton Scholarship with the approval of her family. The scholarship will be in the amount of $500.00 and will be awarded to a deserving undergraduate or graduate student who exemplifies the characteristics that Sharonda embodied: leader among her peers, involved with sports, and active participation in her school, church, and/or community. Eligibility for the Sharonda Coleman-Singleton Memorial Scholarship is merit-based. Application review is based on a point system and is completed by a review committee independent of training programs. The scholarship application will be placed on the SCSHA Website soon. We anticipate awarding the scholarship during the annual convention next year. If interested in donating to the Sharonda Coleman-Singleton Memorial Scholarship Fund, please mail donations to: SCSHA, ATTN: Sharonda Coleman-Singleton Scholarship Fund, PO Box 1782, Columbia, SC 29202.
SCSHA is a professionally managed Association with more than 900 members. Our Board works hard to cultivate a world where effective communication skills and quality treatment is available for all. Contact Us at email@example.com!
