Baldwin Memorial Scholarships Awarded to Twelve GC Seniors


The Greenbrier County Schools Foundation recently awarded Stephen L. Baldwin Memorial Scholarships to twelve Greenbrier County high school seniors.  Recipients selected for the $1000 scholarship awards were Prahalath Anbu Bharathi, Jamie Boone, Bronwyn McMahan-O’Shea, Carley Midkiff, Rebekah Stout, Tiana Turner, and Savannah Weikle from Greenbrier East High School.  Receiving the awards from Greenbrier West High School were Mikayla Tincher, Brianna Reel, David Bishop, Katherine Helmick, and Thomas Vestal.

Stephen L. Baldwin served as the Superintendent of Greenbrier County Schools from 1988-2002.  This endowed scholarship fund was established in 2005 by the Greenbrier County Schools Foundation (GCSF) with a gift from Mr. Baldwin’s wife, Charlotte.  Stephen L. Baldwin Memorial Scholarships are awarded annually to students from Greenbrier East High School and Greenbrier West High School.  Since 2006, one hundred and twenty-three scholarships have been awarded.

It was through Mr. Baldwin’s dedication and vision that the Greenbrier County Schools Foundation was established.  This scholarship fund is just one of many meaningful ways that his commitment to education and his impact on the lives of Greenbrier County students will continue for years to come.

The Greenbrier County Schools Foundation is a non-profit organization that generates and distributes resources to enrich, maintain, and expand educational opportunities for students in Greenbrier County.  Gifts to the foundation are tax-deductible.  Individuals and businesses interested in making a contribution or learning more about the mission and goals of the foundation should contact Tim Holbrook at 304-546-1893.

2018 Stephen Cooke Automotive Technology Scholarship Recipients Announced

Stephen Cooke Automotive Technology Scholarship recipients Andrew Seldomridge (second from left) and Matthew Boggs receive their awards from Steve Cooke, son of Stephen Cooke (left) and Tim Holbrook, Executive Director of the Greenbrier County Schools Foundation.

 The Greenbrier County Schools Foundation awarded the Stephen Cooke Memorial Scholarship to Greenbrier East students Andrew Seldomridge and Matthew Boggs. Andrew plans to attend NRCTC in Lewisburg. Matthew will attend Ohio Technical College after graduation.

 This scholarship, in its second year, is in memory of Stephen Cooke who passed away on January 2, 2017. As the first auto mechanics teacher at Greenbrier East High School, and over his 21-year career, Steve Cooke had the opportunity to teach hundreds of young men and women how to be good auto mechanics and, more importantly, how to be good people.

 Steve was known for his faith, character, compassion and youthful spirit, as well as being a positive role model to all who knew him. He was an avid runner, cyclist, and lover of the Greenbrier River until late in life.

 To honor Steve’s memory and give back to the community he so loved, an automotive technology scholarship has been established in his name. This scholarship will help deserving students further their education at a certified post-graduate automotive technology vocational school of their choice. 

Congratulations to our 2018 Scholarship Recipients!
