The Cherokee County School Board has recognized the winner of the inaugural East West Bank Scholarship! The newly established Partnership Agreement between the School Board and bank specifies one $2,500 scholarship will be awarded by the Bank to a graduating senior from a CCSD high school each year. The Class of 2019 school is Cherokee High School, and a committee of Bank representatives and retired educators selected Erin Lucas as the winner from a pool of outstanding applicants. Jim Browning of East West Bank joined the School Board in making the special presentation at its May meeting.
