Four Beaufort area high school seniors each received a $1,500 scholarship grant through the Lieutenant General George I. Forsythe Rotary Scholarship Program at the Rotary Club of Beaufort’s June 2 luncheon meeting.

The four recipients, each nominated by their respective high schools were Rachael Reineri of Beaufort Academy, Brianna Martinez of Battery Creek High School, Abigail Chiaviello of Beaufort High School, and Molly Smith of Beaufort High School.

Three recipients – Smith, Martinez, and Chiaviello – were introduced to the Beaufort Rotarians and recognized with certificates. Reineri was not able to attend the event.

The Lieutenant General George I. Forsythe Scholarship is presented annually to graduating seniors from Beaufort County high schools north of the Broad River in memory of Forsythe, a member of the Beaufort Rotary from 1972, when he completed a distinguished 33-year military career, until his passing in 1986.

Certificates of recognition were presented to the recipients by the Rotary’s scholarship chair, retired Brigadier General Barney Forsythe, son of the late George Forsythe, and a Rotarian since 2006.

Reineri will attend the University of South Carolina. Brianna Martinez will attend Middle Georgia State University. Abigail Chiaviello will attend Clemson University. And Molly Smith will attend Lander University.
