About the Sirrine Scholarship Program

The J. E. Sirrine Scholarship Program was established through the generosity of the late Joseph Emory Sirrine. Mr. Sirrine left the bulk of his estate as a perpetual memorial to his father and mother to be used to assist deserving graduates of Greenville County public high schools.
