Sha’nyla Annette Danzy, daughter of Ebony Danzy of Bethune, has been selected as a finalist in the Pre-Teen South Carolina Scholarship and Recognition Program to be held Sept. 3 through 5, at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville.

Pre-Teen South Carolina is a by-invitation only scholarship and recognition event involving young ladies 7 to 12 years of age based on their school academic records, awards and honors won and/or their participation in outside activities. Additionally, young ladies are invited who have been recognized publicly for their outstanding personal achievements, volunteer services, school involvement, leadership abilities or creative talents.

State finalists will be evaluated on academic achievement; volunteer service to community; school honors and activities; development of personal skills and abilities; general knowledgeability; communicative ability and on-stage acknowledgment of accomplishments.

Pre-Teen South Carolina will award more than $5,000 in educational bonds, prizes and awards.

Danzy is very grateful to the following sponsors who have enabled her to attend this very prestigious state event: Ebony Danzy, Mr. and Mrs. Johnny Caldwell, Jamal Caldwell, Dwayne Danzy, and Sammie Danzy.
