William “Bill” T. Linton III’s family has a strong Clemson legacy, one that stretches from the 19th century through the 20th and into the 21st. Clemson has given so much to the Linton family and it is their hope that all young men and women can experience the wonderful things Clemson has to offer. In 2006, the Linton family established the Linton Family Endowment in Nursing ultimately helping students start their own Clemson legacy.
The Annexstad family established the Annexstad Family Foundation Scholarship in 2000 to help deserving students, specifically those who have overcome extraordinary hardships, achieve a college degree. The Clemson partnership was established in 2015, and in fall 2016, the first scholarship was awarded to a Tiger who is now one step closer to achieving his medical dream.

However, thanks to generous donors, Todd has been able to continue to grow and thrive at Clemson, all while making memories she’ll never forget.
