Jim French, Savannah River Remediation (SRR) President and Project Manager, presented a $5,000 check to Dr. George C. Bradley, President of Paine College in Augusta last week. The donation will go towards the Paine College Annual Scholarship Fund (ASF) for Paine College students.

The Annual Scholarship Fund is the single most important fundraising priority of the College because it provides direct financial support to Paine College students. Scholarships are the means through which the College recruits and retains the best students. The Paine College Annual Scholarship Fund provides scholarship assistance to students based on merit and need. About 90% of students are in need of financial assistance others are eligible for federal funding, but there is still a significant unmet need. The Annual Scholarship Fund assists students in their goal of receiving a college education.
