To support the Pearl Fryar Scholarship Fund
Pearl Fryar believes strongly in the role higher education can play in breaking the cycle of poverty in rural communities. He tells visitors to the garden that he believes a student’s academic performance does not always reflect potential for success.
To realize Pearl’s objective of helping the average student to succeed, the Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden, Inc. contributes to scholarship funds at Central Carolina Technical College in Bishopville, South Carolina and at Clinton Junior College in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Scholarships are awarded to students who might not have done well in high school but who nevertheless show "potential."
The Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden is a preservation project of the Garden Conservancy. For more information on the Pearl Fryar Scholarship Fund, see the scholarship section of the Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden website.
