Paladin Club


Created in 2000 with five original members, the Order of the Paladin began as a way to recognize those Paladin Club members who go above and beyond by contributing annually at the Quarter, Half, or Full Scholarship levels--that is, $10,000 or more per year. The Paladin Club's success relies heavily upon the abounding charity of the members of the Order of the Paladin. Today, with more than 30 members, the Order of the Paladin contributes nearly half of all scholarship gifts received by the Paladin Club each year.

If you are interested in joining this most generous group, please contact Clint Hill, Director of Athletics Development, at 864.294.3732 or

The members of the Order of the Paladin wish to honor the memory of Lucius Weeks, founder of the Order of the Paladin, who passed away in 2013.  It was under Mr. Weeks's leadership that the Order of the Paladin began in 2000 and has since raised more than $5.6 million for athletic scholarships.
