J. Howard Coble Scholarship applications available

HIGH POINT — The J. Howard Coble Scholarship Fund is accepting applications from high school seniors residing in any one of the 14 North Carolina counties formerly served by Congressman Coble.

The deadline for applications is March 31.

Students from the following counties are eligible: Alamance, Caswell, Davidson, Durham, Granville, Guilford, Moore, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rockingham, Rowan, Stokes, and Surry.

Field of study and proof of demonstrated leadership will also be considered as criteria.

Students and parents can go to the High Point Community Foundation website to learn more or apply.

In September 2016, Dr. Ray Coble, a local veterinarian, and his wife, Chris Coble, established the J. Howard Coble Scholarship Fund through the High Point Community Foundation to honor his uncle.

Congressman Coble served 30 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, establishing a legacy as a conservative Republican leader. Hands-on care for his constituents was a hallmark of Coble’s service for decades.

The scholarship committee is made up of Coble family members and others appointed by the High Point Community Foundation.

The foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to strengthening a diverse, healthy and productive community for both present and future generations. It promotes philanthropy, builds and maintains a permanent collection of endowment funds, and serves as a partner and leader in responding to community needs.
