Charles Blewett, a student in the Funeral Service Education program at Ogeechee Technical College in Statesboro, was presented a $1000 scholarship at the Georgia Funeral Directors Association annual conference on St. Simons Island, Georgia recently.  GFDA annually presents a scholarship to an Ogeechee Tech FSE student who works at a member firm and who meets the academic criteria set forth by the association.  A resident of Effingham County, Blewett works with Thomas C. Strickland and Sons Funeral Homes in Effingham and Chatham Counties.  Georgia Funeral Directors Association president, Bryan Evans, of Platt’s Funeral Home in Evans, Georgia, presented the scholarship check and a certificate commemorating the recognition.  Ogeechee Tech instructor, Crystal Vinson, was on hand for the presentation.

In making the scholarship presentation, Evans stated, “It is an honor to assist deserving students by supporting them financially.  We trust this is money well spent by investing in the future of funeral service.”  Blewett thanked the assembled group of conference attendees and said that the funds will be put to good use.
