Cherokee State Bank is able to award scholarships each year to Cherokee County students who are going to college from three different funds with which they are entrusted. One is the Fannye Ament Scholarship; another is the Brummer-Stiles-Duncan Scholarship; and still another is the Florence Frisbie Scholarship.
