Kenneth Malcolm Holloman Jr. was a beloved friend to all who knew him.
He was passionate about his family, friends, and carpentry and woodworking. This scholarship seeks to honor his memory by helping aspiring individuals who desire to pursue a trade in carpentry and woodworking. Due to the shortage of qualified, trained individuals, many low-cost or free trade schools are popping up across the nation. The Kenneth Malcolm Holloman Jr. Memorial Scholarship will help encourage students studying woodworking at trade school.
Students ages 17-28 in trade school or planning to go to trade school for woodworking/carpentry are eligible to apply. Preference is given to high school seniors, high school graduates, or GED recipients, but individuals who did not make it that far will still be considered. While not required, individuals enrolled in an apprenticeship program, state-funded trade school or tech school are encouraged to apply. In your application, write about why you are interested in carpentry/woodworking and what your plans are for your future.
