Globe High School Alumni Scholarship Fund

As of April 2010 the GHS Alumni Scholarship Fund is at approximately $47,000 slightly below its full endowment of $50,000. Realizing that everyone has been affected by the crisis, any contributions toward the scholarship fund will be greatly appreciated to restore and revitalize the scholarship fund.

    The Globe High School Alumni Scholarship fund was created under the auspices of the Arizona Community Foundation. The latter is designed to meet the charitable needs of Arizona's communities through grants, technical assistance, and other services to non-profit organizations. The first scholarship was awarded during the joint reunion of the classes of 1949, 1950, and 1951 in April 2000

    The scholarship idea was the brainchild of the late Chuck O. Lee, Class of 1949, who entered the Globe public school system in 1939 as a 9-year-old immigrant from China, and who did not speak a word of English. Upon graduation from high school, Chuck received a full scholarship to the University of Arizona, subsequently graduating from the College of Business. He considered the scholarship a pivotal event in his life, and was determined to help other Globe High students achieve their dreams of attending college. Chuck, an entrepreneur and former CPA, passed away at his home in Paradise Valley, Arizona in April 2001.

    Other founding members of the scholarship committee were Connie Nelson Haines and Earl "Jukie" Carnell of the GHS Class of 1949; Virginia Brooks Ericson, Carolea Hensley McGowen, Fred Barela, Carmen Lucero Barela, and Vivian Shaw Hannon of the class of 1950.

    The scholarship was carried to fruition with the support and counsel of former Arizona Governor Rose Mofford, an alumna of the Globe High School Class of 1940.

    Contributions to the scholarship fund can be made by writing your check out to the ACF/Globe High Alumni Scholarship Fund, and mailing it to the Arizona Community Foundation, 2201 East Camelback Road, Suite 202, Phoenix, AZ 85016. Telephone: 602-381-1400 or 800-222-8221, FAX 602-381-1575.
