The Fort Hill Clemson Club is the “Clemson, S.C. Clemson Club” and it is an affiliate of the Clemson University Alumni Association. Membership is open to all graduates and friends of Clemson University in Oconee and Pickens Counties. We strive to provide information, fun, and fellowship for all Tigers in our area. We do have fun, but overall our goals are to raise scholarship dollars for students in Oconee and Pickens Counties as well as students from Pendleton High School. We also seek to connect Clemson Alumni in these areas back to Clemson and each other and to educate them regarding Clemson activities.
Due to Covid-19, we are not currently meeting in person but will resume when it is safe for us to gather. Normally, we have three general membership meetings called our “Big Thursday Luncheons” on the first Thursday in May, August, and November each year. We have entertaining and informative speakers affiliated with the university and often hear from current student-athletes. We also offer bus charters to select away football games. Annual membership dues are $90 per person, which includes the meal at each Big Thursday event. Because we did not meet in May and August this year, the monies for those two meetings went straight to the Clemson University Foundation for our scholarship fund for local students.
Plans are underway for the 2021 Recruiting Wrap Up although it may look different than previous years. The Recruiting Wrap Up is our major fundraising event with Coach Dabo Sweeney, held on the evening of national signing day (the first Wednesday in February.) In the past we have met in the Football Indoor Practice Facility and were joined by most of the football coaching staff, President Clements, and several Clemson players. Since 2007 the Fort Hill Clemson Club has awarded 101 scholarships totaling about $125,000 and have created a $350,000 endowment.
It is always a great time to be a Clemson Tiger and a great time to become a member of the Fort Hill Clemson Club. Please join us in our efforts to serve Clemson University.
GO TIGERS! STAY SAFE!
