The University of Tennessee at Martin has awarded the 2009-10 Stanley Gault Scholarships to four West Tennessee students.
Each student will receive $500 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:
• Heather Baker, daughter of Mark and Jeanine Baker of Martin, who will be a junior this fall majoring in biology.
• Elizabeth Barnes, daughter of Cleo and Becky Barnes of Union City, who will be a junior majoring in elementary education this fall.
• Mary Beth French, daughter of Ricky and Sheila French of Springville, who will be a senior majoring in graphic design this fall.
• Amy Gardner, daughter of Rusty and Marchelle Gardner of Martin, who will be a sophomore this fall majoring in business management.
The 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.
The scholarship was established as an endowment, with the principal invested and only the interest 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 reawarded 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.
