This scholarship was created in loving memory of Harvey and Geneva Mabry.
Geneva was passionate about pursuing her education and was determined to persevere through life’s challenges. With the support of her husband, Harvey and family, Geneva returned to school after suffering two strokes and went on to earn her Associates Degree and Certification in Drug and Alcohol Counseling.
This scholarship aims to support adult learners who carry on Geneva Mabry’s legacy of determination when pursuing an education.

The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 22, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
