SRR giving back to Claflin University

AIKEN, SC (WFXG) - The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) liquid waste contractor Savannah River Remediation (SRR) is in the holiday spirit.

The group donated $7,500 to Claflin University's scholarship fund. Claflin University is one of eight South Carolina Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

This isn't the first time SRR has given back. Recently, Paine College received $5,00 dollars for their annual scholarship fund. Officials said they hope this will give students a chance to continue their education and work in fields, such as engineering.
