The Virginia M. Coleman Memorial Scholarship honors longtime matriarch of the Coleman family and Coleman Worldwide Moving. “It is a true honor to assist these deserving students,” says John Coleman, Executive Vice President for Coleman Worldwide Moving. “Each of them begins an exciting journey of education that will ultimately serve the world in so many ways. Virginia Coleman was a dedicated woman who personified hard work, persistence and a desire to give back to those around her. I am confident this year’s scholarship recipients will continue her legacy in their studies and beyond in their family, work and community lives.”
