Coleman World Group recently awarded the Virginia M. Coleman Memorial Scholarship to 22 students attending higher education institutions across six states and one U.S. territory. To qualify for the scholarship, students must have been a son, daughter, or grandchild to a Coleman World Group employee. Since the inception of the scholarship, Coleman World Group has given $161,000 to deserving children and grandchildren of its associates. The scholarship recipients’ education aspirations range from two year technical degrees such as welding up through difficult medical programs at prestigious US medical schools.
The Virginia M. Coleman Memorial Scholarship honors longtime matriarch of the Coleman family and Coleman World Group. “I know that my grandmother would be proud that she is being honored through the education of our company and country’s future,” said Jeff Coleman, CEO of Coleman World Group. “With the continuing inflation towards the cost of education, we feel that this is one great way to give back to our associates and their loved ones.” Mr. Coleman recently finished a term with the Alabama Commission on Higher Education.
