A new Winthrop endowment will support students who are descendants of people who worked at the Celanese Celriver plant.
Students who are from York, Chester or Lancaster counties in South Carolina are also eligible.
The Celanese Celriver corporate complex once encompassed 1,100 acres along the Catawba River and was one of Rock Hill's largest employers.
