WINTERVILLE—Representatives from the Kiwanis of the Golden K Foundation presented a $1,000-check to the Pitt Community College Foundation this month in support of a PCC Automotive Systems Technology (AST) scholarship.

Established through funding from the family of the late Ed Ricks, the Ricks Automotive Scholarship is awarded annually to a second-year AST student at Pitt. The Kiwanis of the Golden K Foundation has contributed to the scholarship for more than a decade.

“(The scholarship) has been a huge help to a lot of people,” said PCC AST Department Chair Norman Lilley. “We absolutely appreciate the support we’ve received from the Greenville Golden K Kiwanis Foundation over the years.”

Ricks, a former Kiwanis of the Golden K member, once operated a service station in Greenville on the corner of 9th and Evans streets. Those who knew him remember his dedication to excellent automotive service and commitment to helping young people succeed.
