Francis Marion University has named five South Carolina students as Heart of the Pee Dee Scholars for the coming academic year. The recipients will pay no tuition during their FMU career as long as they maintain at least 3.0 grade point average.

The Heart of the Pee Dee Scholarship is a long-standing program at FMU and a significant part of the University’s commitment to providing a superlative education to students from the Pee Dee.

Deserving recipients are selected each year by area guidance counselors who attend become a part of the program by attending the annual fall guidance counselor breakfast hosted by FMU. The students are individuals who counselors believe might not attend college without the Heart of the Pee Dee assistance.

This year’s recipients were Samuel Georgia of Latta, Briana Wheeler of Lake View, Sabrina Stanley of Hartsville, Fantasia Toney of Hartsville and MyKenna Blankenship of Darlington.
