Joseph W. Stewart Jr. Endowed Scholarship established
The family of Joe Stewart, a member of the Class of 1969, presented a gift from Stewart’s estate to establish the Joseph W. Stewart Jr. Endowed Scholarship.
Stewart died in 2001. He was an educator and spent his entire career teaching at Remount Road Elementary School in North Charleston. His cousin, William E. Spaulding Jr., said, “Joe felt it was important to have male teachers in elementary schools, so they could serve as role models for the impressionable minds of young children.”
Three generations of Joe Stewart’s family were present for the gift presentation. Pictured: Paige S. Lawrence, second cousin; Ruth Ellen Reeder, first cousin; Eleanora Ragland, third cousin; Bill Ward, CSU assistant vice president for development and planned giving; and William E. Spaulding Jr., first cousin.
