Xan Bowman Scholarships bestowed upon BE grads
Bishop England High School held its graduation ceremonies at Jack Cantey Stadium on June 19, and recipients of the Xan Bowman Scholarship were announced during the senior awards ceremony.
The three recipients for 2020 were Gracie Crosby, Charlie Michel and Jarren McCoy. Each student received a $5,000 scholarship for their freshman year of college. The scholarships were raised through the Xan The Man Golf Tournament.
Crosby and Michel will attend the Bridge to Clemson program, while McCoy will enroll at Clemson University.
Crosby will begin her Bridge experience in pre-business but plans to transfer to construction management and science once at Clemson.
McCoy will pursue an undergraduate degree in engineering and plans to attend medical school.
The Xan Bowman Scholarship and the Xan The Man Golf Tournament were established in 2017 after Bowman passed away before his scheduled graduation from Clemson. He graduated from Bishop England in 2012 and was a member of the Bridge to Clemson program.
It marked the third year BE students benefited from the Xan the Man Golf Tournament.
Last year’s recipients were Anna Spence, Kyle Crimmins and Emma Canterbury. The first recipients in 2018 were John Michel and his cousin, Grace Michel.
The tournament has produced $40,000 in scholarships since its inception.
The fourth annual Xan The Man Golf Tournament will be held Oct. 3 at the Summerville Country Club. Entry fee will be $400 a team, and, as usual, the tournament will be seeking hole sponsors and other prize donors. For more information, call 843-814-2113 or visit xanthemangolf.com.
