Gwen Combs-Varner Scholarship
Gwen was most known for her engaging personality. She never met a person that she did not consider a friend and over the years she had many. While at Booker T. Washington High School she was known as one of the band's most energetic members and always loved her time as a band member. That love and energy transferred to her family and friends throughout her lifetime. Gwen raised 3 exception children all with unique educational talents. She was also very supportive of her family members, sometime traveling long distances to attend the events they were participating in. This kind of support was also the norm for her friends and colleagues. Her humanitarian efforts were infectious to anyone who came in contact with her. Always involved in fundraising activities thru walk-a-thons, candy sales and attending banquets. Gwen left lasting first impressions, touched many lives and left many cherished memories in such a short lifetime.
Mark Barre' Scholarship
Mark Barre' is best known as an outstanding high school baseball and football player. Some remember him for his outgoing personality and approachable sense of humor. Family members remember him as a devoted parent, supportive sibling and appreciative son. Mark was always willing to share with youngsters the importance of being an elite student athlete. In many cases going above and beyond to help teens that were going down the wrong path. Majority of the time he used his charismatic nature to get them out of trouble and at the same time using it as a "teaching moment" to ensure that an understanding was reached. A true master of the impactful "one liner", a gift we will all miss. He always left you with something to think about….
