Each academic semester marks important beginnings for the Winthrop community. So it is fitting that this month, the start of the fall 2013 semester, I share with you news of a new scholarship that memorializes the late Anna Marie Hurst '12, a Winthrop alumna who dedicated her life to helping children.
The Anna Marie Hurst Memorial Scholarship, established by Anna's family, honors her legacy of compassion as well as her dedication to Winthrop by supporting students from South Carolina majoring in elementary education, early childhood education, or family and consumer sciences.
Today let's celebrate this new gift, which commemorates Anna's passion for education and her love of Winthrop and supports education majors in their journey to become tomorrow's teachers.
