The dream of leaving high school to enter college is about to become reality for nine local students thanks to the Joseph B. Freeman Jr. Educational Fund. Gardner-Webb University announced the names of this year’s recipients, all Cleveland County high school seniors, during a presentation held in front of the Cleveland County Chamber in uptown Shelby, N.C., on May 21. Established in 1991 by area business leaders, the Freeman Fund was named for the late Joseph B. Freeman, who was head of the Interstate Johnson Lane office in Shelby.
