Once Homeless, Now Headed to Furman
Even though Khendra Witt was homeless for a while during her freshman year in high school, she didn’t allow those circumstances to hold her back. She graduated from Mauldin High School this spring as the senior class co-president and the recipient of the 2016 Service Above Self Scholarship. She will be also be attending Furman this fall with two prestigious university scholarships—the Bell Tower Scholarship and the Dreamer Scholarship. “I look forward to doing amazing things at Furman, with all of the service opportunities, and to give back to Greenville,” she said.
