Perseverance in the Midst of a Pandemic...

2020 has been quite the unusual year!
We at the Garinger Education Foundation hope you are all well. While all of us have been sheltering at home, the work of the Garinger Education Foundation has continued.

This past spring semester and moving into the fall semester, the COVID-19 pandemic is creating many challenges for our GEF Scholars. As the GEF scholarship team works to get status updates on our Scholars before the start of the fall semester, we have already determined that a number of them have lost key sources of funding due to loss of work-study programs and part-time jobs. In many cases, their parents’ jobs have been impacted by the global pandemic eliminating yet another source of support. Remote learning also requires up-to-date laptops and access to good internet at home – another financial burden.  

 

Despite facing these additional hardships, our GEF Scholars continue to persevere and succeed. This spring, 8 GEF Scholars earned their 4-yr degrees! In the 4-year scholarship program as of spring semester 2020, GEF had 37 active scholars with an average cumulative GPA of 3.25. In May, 13 new 4-year GEF scholarships were awarded and accepted by members of the Garinger High School Class of 2020.

The incentive award scholarship partnership with Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) continues to offer many Garinger grads an affordable path to achieving their career goals. Whether it is working towards a certificate, an Associates degree, or transferring to a 4-year institution, CPCC remains the most cost effective path for our graduates.  As of this July, over 40 Garinger graduates attending CPCC are eligible for this scholarship program. The average cumulative GPA of this hardworking group of GEF Scholars is 2.9 with 12 recipients earning over a 3.5 cumulative GPA.


The work cannot continue without your support!
As expected with all of the uncertainty surrounding this pandemic, donations have slowed. Please consider a financial contribution now to help sustain the important work of
Changing Lives, One Scholarship At A Time.

A Few Words from Our President...

Earlier this year, the Foundation was humbled by a generous gift of over $41,000 made by the estate of Phyllis Hargett Shumaker (class of ’65).  While I did not know Phyllis, I was able to speak at length with her daughter Jennifer.  It is obvious that the world was a better place with Phyllis being a part of it.  As a volunteer of the Foundation, our work can sometimes be arduous.  To hear that Phyllis had only three beneficiaries – her family, her church, and her high school, lets me know that the hard work is appreciated and invigorates all of us in the Foundation  to continue working  hard to ensure all our graduates have a shot at improving their lives through higher education. 
Phyllis – Thank You.

Brian Fulbright
