Watson Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund
In memory of Dallas, Hazel, and Leland Watson
Established in 2001, this scholarship serves as a memorial for Charleston residents Dallas and Hazel Watson, and their son, Leland. It recognizes the Watson family's lifetime interests and careers in business (Dallas), Republican politics at the local, state, and national levels (Hazel) and theatrical lighting including technical lighting for forty-two Broadway productions (Leland). It is intended to help qualified students pursue an education which will lead them into productive careers. It is the hope of the donors that each recipient will, during his or her career, make contributions to the community in which they live and that they will work toward being an active member of the community.
