GIST FAMILY REUNION ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPIt has been the desire of the Gist National Family Reunion to start a scholarship fund. As we know many of our ancestors did not get an opportunity to be educated. It was forbidden. Although our family could not attend many schools our mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles and grandparents understood the importance of getting an education. For our first scholarship the family will award a high school senior that will be continuing their education at a 2-4 year program or trade program at an accredited institute of learning. This includes, community colleges, colleges and universities and trade programs (i.e. electrical, plumbing, nursing, law enforcement, hospitality, business).
The Gist National Family Reunion will present a monetary gift to at least one graduating high school senior or first year attendee in college or trade school at the upcoming family reunion. The recipient must fill out the application, meet the criteria, and be in attendance at the family reunion with the exception of special circumstances approved by the scholarship committee.
