The James H. Kilpatrick Scholarship Fund was established in 2002 in memory of Mr. Kilpatrick, a long time builder member of the Association and ETBA President in 1992. The Kilpatrick Scholarship funds are generated through our annual Sporting Clays Tournament. As of 2016, we have awarded $123,200 in James Kilpatrick scholarship funds to ETBA Member’s Children.
The James O. Varner Memorial Scholarship was established in 2012 in memory of long time ETBA builder member, James Varner. The funds for this scholarship are raised through private donations. As of 2016, we have awarded $4,000 in memory of James Varner.
Our newest scholarship fund was established in 2015, in memory of ETBA’s past Executive Officer, Jimmie Snider. Mrs. Snider retired in 2010, after serving as a vital leader of the Association for 40 years. On March 8, 2015, our friend and mentor, Ms. Jimmie Snider went home to be with her heavenly Father. The Jimmie Snider Memorial Scholarship funds were raised through numerous memorial contributions. This year, we awarded $3,500 in her precious memory.
We sincerely appreciate everyone that has contributed in any way to the scholarship funds and we appreciate Atrium Windows and Doors sponsoring the scholarship recognition dinner each year. We are grateful for the opportunity to play a role in assisting our member’s children with their investment of college education.
We are overwhelmingly proud of each recipient that has pursued their educational goals and career dreams over the last thirteen years. We are excited for the 2016 recipients and we wish them the greatest success. It is a pleasure to remember Mr. Kilpatrick, Mr. Varner and Mrs. Snider through these scholarships. As of 2016, (thanks to all three scholarship funds) the ETBA has awarded a total of $130,700 in scholarships. This truly is a member benefit; so, please remember that ETBA’s member’s children are eligible to apply for the scholarship each year in June.
