Eddie Payne Endowment

The USC Upstate Athletic Department is pleased to announce that it has received a transformational gift of $25,000 from Dr. Steven and Marion Singleton to establish an endowed scholarship in honor of former Head Men’s Basketball Coach Eddie Payne.

The endowment pays tribute to Coach Payne for his 15 years of service as the Men’s Basketball Coach at USC Upstate. The newly created scholarship will provide financial support for members of the USC Upstate men’s basketball program.
In addition to the $25,000 gift to begin the endowment, The Singleton Family has committed to match additional gifts to the endowment up to $25,000 through the end of 2021.
