Craig Holbrook Parham Scholarship
The Craig Holbrook Parham Scholarship Fund of the First Baptist Church of Greenwood, SC, was established in 1986 to celebrate the life of Craig Holbrook Parham, whose life was filled with exuberance and joy in human relationships.
Craig was an active member of First Baptist church and an enthusiastic participant in the "total church program, from sports to music and the entire range of activities for young people." Craig was an usher, taught Sunday School, and presided as lay minister for Youth Sunday. His love for his church, its ministers and congregation, was a reflection of his gregarious nature and his interest in his fellow man.
The Craig Holbrook Parham Scholarship Fund was established for the sole purpose of providing scholarship assistance to students pursuing degrees from accredited theological seminary for full-time Christian service.
