Rebekah Hyder, daughter of Kenneth and Pam Hyder, has been awarded the Tryon Youth Center/Tryon Federal Bank/Russell Constance Memorial Scholarship.
The Tryon Youth Center Scholarships are $1,000 and are awarded in increments of $500 each semester of the student’s freshman year of college.
While a student at Polk County High School, Hyder was very busy studying, participating in sports, including tennis and shooting, working part time and volunteering in her community and her church.
Hyder plans to attend North Greenville and pursue a degree in early childhood education with an emphasis on special education.
In her application essay Rebekah stated, “A passion of mine is to help people.”
The last two summers she has spent time on mission trips to Cineguilla and Lima, Peru, where she worked in an orphanage.
Tryon Youth Center and Tryon Federal Bank officials said they wish Rebekah success in her college career and fulfilling her passion to serve others.
