Citizens Building & Loan is pleased to announce the four area high school students who were selected to receive the CBL Foundation Higher Education Scholarships for the year 2016.
Blue Ridge High School recipients of the CBL Foundation Scholarship were Brason Haney, who will be attending USC in Columbia and Lindsey Anderson, who will attend Furman University.
Recipients of the Dr. Robert F. Williams Scholarship were Greer High School seniors Jessica Greene, who will attend Furman University and Elizabeth Schneider, who will attend Erskine College. This scholarship is named in honor of Dr. Robert Williams, a long-time CBL Director and Chairman of the Board, who was a well-known proponent of higher education.
The CBL Charitable Foundation annually awards individual $5000 higher education scholarships to graduating seniors at Greer area schools. The scholarship money is sent directly to the student’s college to offset continuing education tuition costs. Students interested in applying can find the applications and qualifications on the Community page on this website.
The CBL Charitable Foundation was established in 1999 by Citizens Building & Loan’s Board of Directors to support local non-profit and charitable entities that serve the Greater Greer Area. Citizens Building & Loan, SSB, has proudly been serving the mortgage lending and savings needs of Greer, SC and the surrounding communities since 1907.
