2. There are seven endowed scholarships awarded each academic year:
a. Six endowed at $25K each being fully funded by the TABA (Adams, Haney, Holick, Toler, Brewer TABA 2020)
b. A new endowed $50K scholarship in honor of Richard Poling ’69 was partially funded by the TABA, the Class of ’69, and his family.
c. The grade point averages range from 3.08 to 4.0 for the Fall Semester. We received very gracious thank you letters from all recipients for the support offered by the TABA- and they asked that we pass on their heartfelt appreciation. Members of the Board plan to host them at a dinner later this semester.
