Welcome 2019-20 Sisters of Charity Foundation of SC President’s Fellows

Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina takes pride in mentoring the next generation of African American, male philanthropists through the President’s Fellow program with Benedict College.

“This year, the candidates for the President’s Fellow were so outstanding that we couldn’t just pick one. These young men have bright futures ahead of them, and I’m glad we can help them understand the role philanthropy can play in those futures. Our entire staff looks forward to working with them this year,” said Tom Keith, president of Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina.

This year’s fellows, Heyveon Clemons and Antonio Lambright Jr., are sophomores who are involved in several leadership and scholastic activities.

Heyveon is an Accounting major who maintains a 3.9 GPA. He is expected to graduate in spring 2022. Heyveon is involved in several organizations, including the Benedict Chapter of Collegiate 100 and Brothers in Unity program. He is also an active member of Flora Branch Church and serves as an usher and youth choir member. After graduating, Mr. Clemons plans to pursue a Master of Accounting degree to further his goal of becoming an entrepreneur who continuously pours back into his community. He believes in giving to those that have helped him and helping those who are in need.

Antonio is a Business Administration major who maintains a 3.7 GPA. He is expected to graduate in spring 2022.
