SRMC Funds Scholarship for Claflin University

Mar 17, 2023
Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC), the liquid waste contractor at Savannah River Site (SRS), presented a $10,000 check to Claflin University to support student scholarships.
In addition, SRMC and Claflin University partnered on a senior students’ capstone project where students are working on ways to improve the method for removing and replacing the radioactively contaminated device, called the strip effluent coalescer, within the Salt Waste Processing Facility solvent recovery system. The students’ work should be completed in May.
Dave Olson, SRMC President and Program Manager, said the Capstone project and scholarship are expected to encourage students to continue their studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. He added that his goal is to see their work translate into coming to SRS to work.
"We want these students to succeed," Olson said. "Recently, I addressed a group of Claflin students and suggested they begin planning their lives now. Helping students continue their education puts them on the road to good jobs, along with the opportunity to choose a meaningful career."
Claflin University President Dr. Dwaun J. Warmack said he looks to companies, such as SRMC, to provide students with meaningful opportunities to see what careers are available to them.
“The Capstone project our senior students are undertaking demonstrates SRMC’s desire to help them consider bigger issues beyond the walls of our institution,” Warmack said. “Together with this scholarship, I believe we have a partnership that will be mutually beneficial for years to come.”
