We are happy to announce that the TOTAL SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS for 2012: $31, 145.00
On Behalf of the Edward Taylor Coombs Foundation we are honored to bestow upon the following student a scholarship in honor of our Son and brother Edward Coombs.
The ETC foundation was founded to not only continue the legacy of Edward Taylor Coombs but also to support visionary leaders of tomorrow who display exceptional promise today. A second goal of the Foundation is to work with high school students around the issues of “responsible decision making”, whether we are discussing safe and healthy peer relationships, appropriate usage of “social media”, as well as the consequences of drinking and driving, the ETC Foundation hopes to be on the front line of teenage and young adult education and empowerment
This has been a heartfelt experience for several families and our community.
