THE AUSTIN FAMILY SCHOLARSHIP, LLC
Willis Austin, Jr Memorial Scholarship
Background / Family History
Willis Austin, Jr was born in Berkeley County on November 25, 1931 and worked hard early in his life as a farmer and blacksmith’s assistant. Mr. Austin joined the US Air Force and served his country during the Korean War. Following his service he was accepted at The Citadel and graduated in 1958 – the first person to become a college graduate in his family. Mr. Austin moved his family to Hanahan in 1964 where he and his wife Barbara raised three sons Tim, Tony and Ted.
Willis Austin was very active in his service to the Hanahan community. He held strongly to the belief that a willingness to learn, personal responsibility and hard work formed the basis of success. In this light, the Austin Family would like to offer an annual scholarship in memory of our father, Willis Austin, Jr.
