The Newberry Observer released that, "four local high school students were recognized by City Council as the 2019 recipients of the Newberry-PMPA Community
Scholar Scholarship. Matthew Epting, Andy Lin, Ledare Livingston and
Shield Sawyer will each receive a $500 scholarship to go towards tuition
at the state school of their choice.
As one of 10 cities that receives their electricity from the Piedmont Municipal Power Agency (PMPA), the City of Newberry is provided $2,000 from PMPA to give back to the community and divide up among four $500 scholarships.
Mayor Foster Senn and members of council congratulated each of the students on a job well done."
