Alton Lee McCullough Scholarship

offered by the
OFTC Foundation South

The Alton Lee McCullough Scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating senior from the Laurens

County School System who will enroll in a technical or industrial program at Oconee Fall Line

Technical College.

The scholarship is given in memory of Alton Lee McCullough, a life-long resident of Laurens

County. “Mr. Mac” was a retired vocational teacher, school administrator, and farmer. He was the

Laurens County School Superintendent from 1965 to 1973, and in his capacity of superintendent was

an advocate for the adjacent location of a comprehensive high school and technical school at the

intersection of Interstate 16 and U.S. Highway 441. He was a member and leader in many civic,

educational and religious organizations, but those he enjoyed most were the Retired Teachers

Association, his Sunday School Class at Cadwell Baptist Church, and the Laurens County Farm

Bureau.

The Alton Lee McCullough Scholarship is $1,000 and a plaque. The monetary stipend is awarded at

the rate of $350 for the initial semester and $325 for the subsequent two semesters. The stipend will

be paid by a check from the OFTC Foundation South to the student recipient upon successful

registration for each of the semesters of eligibility.

A completed application, copy of high school transcripts, and completed personal references are due

by April 15 of the graduating year. Awards will be made at the annual high school academic honors

ceremony. To be eligible for consideration for this award, the applicant must apply to Oconee Fall

Line Technical College upon graduation from high school. Priority will be given to students

interested in pursing a career in diesel equipment technology. Award is pending acceptance to

Oconee Fall Line Technical College.
