It is our intention to give merit awards to graduating seniors who have recognized potential or academic strength; they have a desire to participate in and benefit from further education and/or training and have shown both maturity and responsibility.
The ETC Foundation was established with the intent of providing outstanding scholar/athletes financial assistance to pursue their higher education goals, so that they can reach their full potential. The scholarships will 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” through seminars, forums, videos and other education programs. 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.
The ETC Foundation strives to spread this mission in the legacy of Edward Taylor Coombs, an academically gifted and athletically talented young man with an easy smile and huge heart.
