For over 20 years, the Benevolent, Patriotic Order of Does #148 of Union has presented a scholarship to USC Union to support higher education. The scholarship is presented each year to one male and one female who are new, incoming freshmen. The 2020-2021 recipients were Haley Palmer and Robert Kennington, and the 2021-2022 recipients are Brittany Hightower and Trent Turner.
The deadline to submit an application for USC Union scholarships is May 15, 2022. For more information, visit the school’s website or call the Financial Aid Office at 424-8024.
The Does have been established in Union County since 1957. They promote social activities among members, promote generous work in the community and are active with charity and social projects. During the year, the Does have bake sales and other campaigns to raise funds for Meals on Wheels, American Cancer Society, Union County High School Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Miracle League of Union County, Ronald McDonald House, and others. They also donate gifts to residents at Promedica Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation (formerly Heartland) during the holidays.
