David Parrott Scholarship

For the 34th year, the annual David Parrott Scholarship was awarded at Bethesda for the development of Christian character to a rising freshman in college.  This year's recipient is Julia Daniels.  Julia is the daughter of Bethesda members Kathryn and Billy Watkins and granddaughter of Judy Matthews.  Julia is attending Clemson University this fall. 

The Parrott Scholarship is a memorial to David Parrott, an outstanding youth in his family, church & community.  David died of cancer at a young age, but is remembered as a very special person by those who knew him personally and those who know him  through this scholarship.

Louise Mickle Harvey Scholarship Fund

In 1995, the late Tom Harvey established the Louise Mickle Harvey Scholarship Fund in memory of his wife. This fund provides financial assistance to deserving female medical students from this area. Over the past nineteen years, an excess of $133,000 in scholarships have been awarded to eleven different students. Among the recipients are Jennifer Blake Ford and Emily Herman Huggins from the Bethesda family, as well as nine other women from the midlands of South Carolina.

The Scholarship Committee is actively searching for deserving women who are currently or will shortly enroll in medical school as candidates for this scholarship. If you know of such a person, you are invited to contact any of the members of the Scholarship Committee through the church office
