Message from the President
Thanks to the involvement, work, and financial support of members and friends, we are proud to be a part of the Charleston ESU which has actively provided scholarships to deserving educators and students for more than 80 years.
The ESU was founded in 1918 in England and organized in the USA in 1920. Our Charleston branch was established in the early 1930's and continues to actively support educational goals as well as cultural and social activities. We fund our scholarships with income from membership dues, patron donations, benefactor donations, special donations to The John Winthrop Scholarship Fund, and profit from regular meetings and special events.
Please go online to http://www.esuus.org for much more information about the ESU and the many educational programs which benefit from the generosity of ESU members.
We would like to increase community awareness as well as membership in the Charleston ESU. Please invite friends to our functions and please remember to renew your membership each June by sending your dues and information online or by contacting any ESU board member. Our current board consists of
- Lawrence Hollingsworth, as president,
- Ocie Ford as treasurer, and
- Nancy Hollingsworth as recording secretary
- Marcy Barnhill as Membership Chair
- Jerry Marterer as Events Chair
- Florance Anderson as Publicity Chair
- Jane Broadwater, Barbara DeMarco and Bob Causby as Board Members
We invite all interested in becoming involved to contact one of us.
Thanks for your continuing support and please remember that many of your friends may not be familiar with the ESU or our educational goals, and that we enjoy welcoming guests as well as members at all functions! Please note that online RSVP invitations are sent to our list of members and friends for each event. Please advise if you have friends who would like to be included.
With best personal regards,
