In 1975 the Christian Stewardship Subgroup of Holman United Methodist Women under the leadership of Mrs. Beatrice Borders discussed with the members how they could show appreciation to the students of the church who had participated in Sunday School, MYF and given valuable service to the church. They wanted our young people to know that with dedication, guidance, perseverance, and hard work that a Christian education is just as important as an academic education. With that in mind, the members decided to give a small scholarship to a student who would graduate from high school. During the past 37 years, 79 scholarships have been awarded totaling approximately $55,000 dollars. Click for more information.
Most scholarships are geared to students with high grade point averages. However, the Beta Chapter Double Ring Club established the Alen Henry Memorial Scholarships in 1986 for Holman youth with a different perspective. The emphasis would be more on an applicant’s church, school, and community involvement than a high GPA. This has been a success story for three decades now with nearly $60,000 awarded to graduating high school seniors and continuing college/university students.
