“The Abbeville Promise is a proposed scholarship program that, if successful, would guarantee a free two-year education at PTC to every student who receives a high school diploma while an Abbeville County resident.

The Freshwater Coast Community Foundation is running the capital campaign, which has a fundraising goal of $1.2 million to fund the scholarship for 10 years.

Lee Logan, a member of the FCCF’s charter board, said the campaign is on course to raise the $1.2 million in time to make the scholarship available to the graduating class of 2018 but could not release the amount of money pledged.”
