On May 18, 2017, the Palmetto Quilt Guild awarded our 2017 Visual Arts Scholarship to Caroline Vaughn, a Senior at Hilton Head High School. Caroline is pursuing a career in Industrial Design, and as she explained as part of her application, Caroline wants to design products that will benefit third world countries. These products will also be energy efficient. She has given her time by volunteering in our community, and also working part-time while attending school. Caroline’s work ethic and future plans are inspiring.
On May 19, 2016 the Palmetto Quilt Guild awarded three scholarships to three 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.
