Cockys Reading Express

South Carolina Center for Community Literacy Fund

When the college launched Children, Libraries and Literacy in 2005, it crafted a statewide initiative to reduce illiteracy in South Carolina by taking a fresh and tactically new approach. Our ultimate goal is to reduce the cycle of illiteracy among South Carolina’s children and adults, particularly in underserved or disadvantaged communities.

Provides support for Dean Reichert’s immediate needs of the college such as scholarships for students, financial assistance for student competition teams, technology and programs for students and faculty, bringing speakers to campus and more.

Alumni donors can provide tuition assistance for students attending one of our two schools: Journalism and Mass Communications and Information Science. This scholarship fund was created by our alumni, for children of our alumni.
