The Palmetto Electric Trust recently presented a $50,000 check to the Technical College of the Lowcountry Foundation to establish The G. Thomas Upshaw Endowed Scholarship Fund, which honors recently retired Palmetto Electric President and CEO G. Thomas Upshaw. The scholarship will support students residing in Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton counties in South Carolina who attend TCL, and preference will be given to United States active-duty military members and veterans and their families.
