Today’s Purchases Support Future Generations
A portion of our April proceeds will be given to benefit two local scholarships.
At Wallace & Son, we believe that education sows seeds for success.That’s why we’ve created two scholarship funds to support local students on their quest to pursue a college degree or technical training. Each April, a portion of our sales go directly to help fund the Ruth F. Wallace Scholarship and Charlie Turman Scholarship. Please join us in supporting this great cause that helps pave the way for future generations.
About the Scholarship
Ruth F. Wallace Scholarship
This scholarship was created to honor the memory of Ruth F. Wallace, a lifelong educator and business leader, better known to our family as “Grandma”. Born in the month of April, we honor her legacy all month long by making it easier for the next generation to accomplish their goal of a college education.
$4,000 (1k per year for 4 years)
Charlie Turman Scholarship
The Charlie Turman Scholarship honors the legacy of a long-time member of our team at Wallace and Son. Mr. Turman's loyalty, longevity and work ethic embodies what every employer is looking for in an employee. We understand that not every student desires a four year college degree. This scholarship is intended to help technical school applicants pursue training and certifications in their chosen field.
$2,000 (1k per year for 2 years)
Prospective students can apply from January through March of each year. The scholarships are administered by the Community Foundation of the CSRA. If you would like to make a direct contribution to either or both of these funds, please contact our store for details.
