Student of Integrity Award Winners




The Better Business Bureau of the Upstate awarded six Student of Integrity Awards to rising high school seniors in the Upstate who personify character through leadership, community service, personal integrity and academic history. Each student received a $1,500 scholarship to attend an accredited college or university. The "Stand Out Student" award recipient was Ashley Ward, who will receive a $2,000 scholarship in her first year and the second year, the scholarship is renewable based on maintaining a 3.0 grade point average.
