A.Bevy was founded 7 years ago with a focus on hosting events in order to raise money to give scholarships to rising & current collegiate students across the state. Though many changes have occurred within our structure, we have never veered away from the “scholarship” being the end goal of any & all that we do.


The Katie Lee Johnson Scholarship, named in recognition of Steven K. Gantt’s great-grandmother whom segregation kept from secondary education, now allows A.Bevy to have a hand in the Ride Spring, Ward, and Monetta, SC communities in order to help show, push, & prove to our youth that through Change, Progression, & Growth… anything is possible. It’s our responsibility to reach down & make sure the future is better than the present & we at A.Bevy would like to thank Steven K. Gantt for his vision, purpose, & understanding of such shown by his will to give back to his alma mater. 

The Katie Lee Johnson Scholarship goes to a graduating senior at Ridge Spring-Monetta High School. In 2016, the second recipient of the Katie Lee Johnson Scholarship was Ms. Kipp Palmer who is now attending Clemson University.
