L. C. & Ellen Kemp Memorial Scholarship

Title: L. C. & Ellen Kemp Memorial Scholarship
Description: Established in honor of Patsy Lieuene Kemp Powell as a Christmas gift in 1999 from her husband, Roger Powell. This scholarship is in memory of Patsy's father, Lieuene Cochran Kemp and in honor of her mother, Betty Ellen Folk Kemp, and is to be awarded to GC students with financial need, with preference to a student majoring in Education. Ellen Kemp and her twin sister both went to Texas Tech and Howard Payne and became teachers. Ellen Kemp is now in her nineties, in a rest home, and is doing well SELECT June, 2004); she taught in several small rural schools in Coleman County with her sister. She insisted that her two daughters do well in their public schooling, and was very much still a teacher until late in life. Both Ellen and her twin sister would be happy to know that a new teacher is emerging with the assistance of this scholarship.
