A talent show will raise funds for a scholarship named after a prominent figure in Columbia County education.

The Hattie Mae Marshall Scholarship Fund Talent Show will be at 5 p.m. June 30 in the Greenbrier High School auditorium. The performers will include a variety of talent, such as acting, singing, impressions and dancing, said scholarship fund board member Rebecca Edwards.

One of the groups entered into the talent show is Augusta’s Dance Xtreme. Owner and Artistic Director LaTrisé Simpson said her dancers will perform in such genres as jazz and musical
theater.

“We just enjoy performing in the community and giving people the chance to see us dance,” Simpson said.

Admission costs $6 for all ages.

The Hattie Mae Marshall Scholarship Fund is a nonprofit organization created in 1991 in honor of Marshall, a schoolteacher in Columbia County for more than 30 years, Edwards said.

The scholarship was created to continue Marshall’s legacy by giving back to the kids in the community, Edwards said. “We go out and do fundraisers, and the money that we raise we distribute to kids going off to college or already in college.”

Edwards organized the talent show and also intends to perform with impressions of Tina Turner. Last year, the show raised nearly $2,500. Edwards said this year the goal is $3,000.

For ticket information, call Edwards at (678) 480-7149.
