Clyburn foundation gives S.C. State $300,000

Clyburn

The James E. Clyburn Research & Scholarship Foundation donated $300,000 to South Carolina State University this past weekend.

Clyburn, the U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader, and his wife Emily Clyburn both are 1961 graduates of the state's only public historically black university. Their class marked its 50-year graduation anniversary last weekend.

The donation will provide scholarships for students at S.C. State.
