The Toledo Bend Lake Association (TBLA) has awarded $3000 to Kylee Childress of Hemphill High School, the recipient of the very first Glynn Carver Memorial Scholarship.
TBLA established the Glynn Carver Memorial Scholarship in May of 2019, in recognition of the contributions that Mr. Carver made throughout his life to Toledo Bend and the surrounding communities, as well as the pioneering impact that he had on the fishing industry beyond the borders of Toledo Bend. Glynn Carver was able to benefit from a good education, and he demonstrated how to utilize his education applied through business to be successful and generous in his community.
Kylee graduated third in her class, and she plans to pursue a nursing degree from UT Tyler and eventually become a Nurse Practitioner. She was very active in many community and school organizations, and she graduates from high school with 34 college credits. Congratulations, Kylee! We wish you the best and look forward to seeing you take your place in the future somewhere in the Toledo Bend community.
The Glynn Carver Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually with the next recipient to be announced at the TBLA Bass Unlimited Banquet in April of 2021. Applications for the scholarship can be found at http://www.toledobendlakeassociation.com in the fall of 2020.
