ROCK HILL, S.C. - Two Winthrop students have received scholarships from the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation to help further their college education.
Ann Kress of St. Clairsville, Ohio, and Mark Evans of Sanborn, N.Y., were chosen as recipients of the foundation’s scholarships because of their active commitment to community service and their academic excellence.
The foundation, which contributed $6,000 to Winthrop last fall, has been a consistent contributor to the university since 1999. To date, the foundation has provided more than $90,000 to Winthrop to use for scholarships.
Established in New York in 1934 and now based in Oxford, Miss., the foundation promotes the values of community service exemplified by Algernon and Mary Mildred Sullivan, parents of the organization’s founder, George Hammond Sullivan.
