Devotion to Excellence in Education

Dedication during uncertain times

With the downturn of the economy and impact of COVID-19, many graduating high school students may face difficult times financing their education. While we hope that our lives will return to normal when this crisis is over, it is hard to imagine that higher education will ever be the same. Your support can make a difference in a student's ability to attend college.

The experience, energy and dedication that Mrs. Grace Fort Gouldsby brought to the field of education greatly enriched our children, our community, and our overall quality of life, and the Scholarship Foundation is one way of continuing her life-long commitment to quality education and quality life. The goal is to raise enough funds to ensure that the Grace Fort Gouldsby Scholarship Foundation will continue in perpetuity, and with your help we can make this goal a reality.
