The University of Tennessee at Martin has awarded the 2008-09 Stanley Gault Scholarships to four West Tennessee students.
Each student will receive $450 for the academic year.
The scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic merit, leadership and a personal essay. First preference is given to the son or daughter of a Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. associate.
This year’s recipients are Mary Beth French, Kala Klidies, Elizabeth Barnes and Amy Gardner.
Ms. French, the daughter of Ricky and Sheila French of Springville, will be a junior this fall majoring in fine and performing arts.
Ms. Klidies, the daughter of Joyce Klidies of Martin, will be a freshman majoring in family and consumer science this fall.
Ms. Barnes, the daughter of Cleo and Becky Barnes of Union City, will be a sophomore majoring in human learning this fall.
Ms. Gardner, the daughter of Rusty and Marchelle Gardner of Martin, will be a freshman this fall with a currently undeclared major.
The Stanley Gault Scholarship was established in 1996 by former Goodyear Union City plant manager Dick Davies and his wife, Barbara, in honor of the former Goodyear chairman. It was established as an endowment; the principal is invested and only the interest is spent. Therefore, the scholarship will continue to be awarded and grow in future years.
To be considered for the Gault Scholarship, students must apply during the spring semester for the following academic year. Current or past recipients of the Gault Scholarship may be re-awarded the scholarship in following years but must reapply each year to be eligible.
Applications are available at Goodyear or the UT Martin Office of Development.
