The Fred H. and Louise A. Powell Endowed Scholarship was established by Dr. Mary Kirk in memory of her parents. Although her parents never had the opportunity to attend college, they dreamed that their children would receive a college education. Dr. Kirk fulfilled their dream as a first-generation college student and established this endowed scholarship in eternal appreciation for their love, support and determination. This scholarship is to be awarded to a full-time student in any program of study that maintains a 3.0 GPA or higher with demonstrated need.
