Mincey and Goodman receive the NF Williams scholarship


Congratulations to Faith Mincey and Landon Goodman for receiving the NF Williams scholarship. Currently, Mincey and Goodman are students at East Georgia State College. The Pin High Golf Association President, Mr. Calvin Lloyd, presented the scholarship to both recipients.

The recipients were selected from high school students who applied for the scholarship. The selection criteria were based on community service, academic achievement, and exceptional character. The students must also successfully enroll in college after graduating from high school.

Mr. NF Williams was an educator in Emanuel County for 42 years. He was responsible for building the first high school for Black students in Emanuel County in 1918. This school was named Swainsboro High and Industrial.

The Pin High Golf Association was organized in 1981. The original founding members were Lawyer Johnson, Jimmy Cross, Tommy Scott, John Coleman, and Frank Coleman. Pin High holds a golf tournament annually in September at the Swainsboro Country Club. Proceeds from the tournament go into the scholarship fund.

If you’re interested in learning more on the Pin High Association, or the Golf tournament, you can contact Mr. Lloyd or any current members.

Pin High Golf Association members include Calvin Lloyd, Terry Faulkner, Dr. Anthony Howard, Tony Parker, Paul Mercer, Willie Fields, Jesse Davis, Lawyer Johnson, Spence Lest, Michael Strowbridge, and Henry Washington
