The South Carolina Speech Language and Hearing Association Board has established the Sharonda Coleman- Singleton scholarship fund to honor the life and legacy of our colleague. Sharonda was one of the victims whose life was taken in the tragedy that occurred June 2015, at Mother Emanuel AME Church Charleston, South Carolina. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton was a native of Newark, New Jersey. She earned her Bachelors of Arts degree from South Carolina State University and a Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology with honors from Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey. She was a member of the South Carolina State University Lady Bulldog Track and Field team from 1987-1991. Sharonda cherished her career as a Speech-Language Pathologist and Track coach at Goose Creek High School in South Carolina. She was a devoted member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. Reverend Sharonda Singleton was an ordained minister and member of Mother Emmanuel AME Church. With the success of the first race, we were able to award two scholarships at our convention this past February. We will award our new scholarship recipients in February 2018 to deserving undergraduate or graduate college students currently majoring in Speech-Language Pathology who exemplifies and embodies Sharondas’ characteristics of faith, leadership, sportsmanship, service, community and dedication.
