Scholarship fund was originally funded with a donation of $2,000 from Croghan’s
Jewel Box of Charleston in memory of Kathy Wagers. Kathy loved her many years working in the
industry first as a Manager for Croghan’s and later in her own store in Mount Pleasant. The Fund welcomes honorariums and memorial
donations to continue the legacy. A $400
scholarship will be awarded annually.
