Claflin University will host the 14th Annual First Lady's Hats & Gloves Scholarship Tea on March 17, at 6 p.m. in the Tullis Arena at the Jonas T. Kennedy Health and Wellness Complex. This special event is held each year during Women's History Month and all proceeds benefit the First Lady's Hats and Gloves Tea Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship fund is designated for academically gifted and exceptionally talented students matriculating at Claflin.
Themed "Valiant Women of the Vote," this year's event will honor former Senator Maggie W. Glover and former Representative Lucille S. Whipper.
Three $2,000 scholarships will be awarded at the event to three Claflin students based on their financial need and academic success. For more information and how to apply for the 2020 scholarship, contact Dr. Peggy S. Ratliff (firstname.lastname@example.org
