Re: “Law keeps some low-income tech school students from receiving lottery funds

Wow, for the racist...thanks for reminding me that I still live in SC and racism is alive and well. Instead of twisting the article into hate for Jenkins, why not focus on what the article is about and educate yourselves on the differences in the scholarships. For starters, ask yourself why the Hope, Life Scholarships have different requisites than the two year Lottery Assistance Scholarships. WHY? To the racist who want to focus on the race of Jenkins, this rule impacts every race in SC, including whites! So if you rid yourself of the racism, then maybe you would understand that all races at Trident Tech are being short-changed when it comes to state money for scholarships. And it's not welfare, the scholarship money is raised from state lottery tickets. To answer the WHY question I raised above, it's anecdotal, but I would surmise the reason for the difference in Hope, Life, Lottery is due to the grade point averages of the students receiving the scholarships. To educate the racist, Hope and Life Scholarship recipients must have a 3.0gpa or above out of high school (and must keep a 3.0gpa while in college to retain scholarship.) In comparison, students who receive the Lottery do not have to meet a certain gpa requirement, they only have to be from the Tri-County area for the money. Is it fair, that's up for debate, but to the racist, please don't use Jenkins to spew your hate and racism because there are many non black students at Trident Tech who could benefit from a change in this policy if deemed unfair.
