WIPL: Growing Strong

In the past eight years, Women in Philanthropy and Leadership for Coastal Carolina University has awarded $140,000 in scholarships to 102 Coastal Carolina students, 23 of whom have received scholarships for the 2014-2015 academic year. These scholarships have been made possible through the support of our members and WIPL donors.

WIPL Scholars attend annual reception

WIPL scholarship recipients recently recognized at the Thanks-for-Giving reception with donors include (l-r) Hailey Olsen, Darcy Barr, Ashley Bartek, Shelby Hubbard and WIPL Executive Director Terri DeCenzo.

A significant gift from Frugal Princess, Inc., allowed two deserving students to attend the prestigious Washington Internship Institute in Washington D.C. to study global women’s leadership development last year. The third Mr. Scott Pyle and Dr. Pamela Pyle "Make a Difference" Scholarship has been awarded to Darcy Barr, a biology and health promotion double major who aspires to pursue osteopathic medicine, for the fall 2014 semester. She is from Myrtle Beach, S.C.

WIPL reached a milestone in 2013 when the endowed scholarship fund passed the $100,000 mark, generating enough for a $5,000 scholarship to be awarded each year. The first Women in Philanthropy and Leadership Endowed Scholarship has been awarded to Hailey Olson of Williamston, S.C., for the 2014-2015 academic year. She is a senior majoring in health administration. Read about WIPL scholarship recipients.
