Money Received From Sale of Specialty Plates Goes to Student Scholarships

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—The wait is over for Gardner-Webb University alumni who live in South Carolina and want to display their school pride on a license plate. South Carolina specialty license plates are now available through the S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The new Gardner-Webb S.C. plates allow supporters of Gardner-Webb to show school pride while providing financial support to GWU.

“We pursued a South Carolina plate, because alumni were interested in showing their support and love for their alma mater in that way,” noted Leah Clevenger, director of Alumni Relations. “We also have a strong population of alumni in that state.”

South Carolina residents may purchase a plate online or at their local DMV. The cost is $30 plus the cost of the registration fee. Gardner-Webb receives $20 back from this specialty fee as a designated amount for student scholarships. For every renewal that the S.C. driver keeps the GWU specialty plate, Gardner-Webb continues to receive $20 back from the additional fee.

North Carolina drivers have been able to purchase GWU license plates since 2004. The plates are also available through any DMV office in North Carolina or online. The cost is an additional fee of $25 added to the annual registration fee. Drivers also have the option to pay extra to personalize their license plate. Gardner-Webb receives $15 back from this specialty fee as a designated amount for student scholarships. For every renewal that the N.C. driver keeps the GWU specialty plate, Gardner-Webb continues to receive $15 back from the additional fee.
