Was the daughter of the late Charles Council and Carrie Elizabeth Blowers Scruggs. Widow of E. Devore Andrews. Mrs. Andrews came to Greenwood from Spartanburg in 1924 to attend Lander College and never left. She made many deep footprints during the intervening years.

A member of South Main Street Baptist Church Mrs. Andrews was also a 1930 graduate of Lander College.

Recognition and awards were numerous, from May Queen at Lander in 1930 to receiving a special award from South Main Baptist Church for sixty years of Sunday School teaching and service to the church.

Once Peggy Andrews set her course to follow Jesus Christ, she never wavered. Her scriptural knowledge was fundamentally sound and vast. Her ministers happily attest to her profound knowledge of the bible and memorization of scripture.

No one can recall anyone saying anything but good things about Peggy Andrews. Her life should be celebrated joyfully at this time of her homecoming.

Mrs. Andrews found time to birth and lovingly nurture three children. They have remained devoted to her throughout her lifetime.

These three children demonstrated their love and admiration by establishing the Margaret (Peggy) Scruggs Andrews Scholarship at Lander University in 2002. This scholarship is awarded to education majors who exhibit need, merit and Christian character and commitment.
