- PQG 2016 Visual Arts Scholarship
On May 19, 2016 the Palmetto Quilt Guild awarded 3 scholarships to 3 seniors at Hilton Head High School to help them pursue their studies in the visual art fields. What made the scholarships unique is that each recipient received a special quilt made by members of the Guild, in addition to a monetary award.
The annual scholarships, of $1000 each, were given this year to Chase and Weston Sanders who will attend Clemson University. A $1,500 scholarship, given in memory of member Carol Paradis, was awarded to Grace Chaplin who will attend Winthrop University.
