Clover Schools Alumni Association
Awards First Scholarship to Catherine Faulkner
May 16, 2019 was an exciting night for the alumni association as Pam Cato, President of the Clover Schools Alumni Association, presented the first Clover Schools Alumni Scholarship, in the amount of $1,000.00 to Miss Catherine Faulkner. The alumni scholarship is made possible through alumni donations and is awarded to a Clover High School student who demonstrates promise in the areas of academic achievement, involvement in school and non-school activities, and in leadership opportunities. Catherine certainly exemplifies each of these qualities. Academically, Catherine is in the top 5% of her class. She is a member of the National Honor Society where she has served as Vice-President of Service. She is also a member of the National French Honor Society, and served as a 2018 Junior Marshall. In 2017, she served as the Clover High School Leadership Representative to the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Conference at Furman University. Catherine has worked on many community service and outreach projects while serving as a volunteer with organizations such as the Clover FFA, the York County 4-H Dairy Club, Bethany ARP Church, HOSA, and Piedmont Medical Center. Outside of school, Catherine is an active member and participant in the Paso Fino Horse Association where she holds an array of titles including several Paso Fino Horse Association National Champion Gold Medal Awards. She is a member of the Paso Fino Youth Team and the United States Equestrian Federation where she has won the title of Paso Fino Youth Grand National Champion and Grand National Champion Reserve Champion. She is also active in the South Carolina Junior Holstein Association, the South Carolina Cattlemen’s Association, the South Carolina 4-H Dairy Heifer Project, and the 4-H/FFA York County Swine Project. In the fall of 2019, she will begin her studies at the University of South Carolina as she pursues her dream of becoming a flight nurse. The Clover Schools Alumni Association is proud of this year’s recipient and wishes her well as she continues her education.
