New Scholarship for SSU Students

A brand new scholarship is in the works for hard-working Savannah State students. The Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity is making it happen with a $10,000 donation. The new scholarship is named for Dr. Mark Clayton, an alumnus who put in half of the money.

But he had no idea they were honoring him for it. "That caught me off guard," he said. "Definitely. I didn't donate the money in hopes that I'd get a scholarship named after me. I was just trying to help the university, fraternity."

The scholarship will be available for Savannah State juniors who earn a 3.0 average or better.
