Pink Francis Memorial Scholarship

Congratulations to Justin Kearse, latest recipient of the Pink Francis Memorial Scolarship!


On March 20, 2001 a great friend of soil and water conservation was lost with the death of Haywood Soil & Water Conservation District Supervisor Pink Francis. Pink was a man who loved life, and shared his laughter with many. His loss will be deeply and painfully felt for years to come.


Pink felt that education was very important, and was among the first to have the vision of a community college, later serving as a member of the Board of Trustees for Haywood Community College. As a way to honor his memory, Pink's family and the Supervisors and Staff at Haywood SWCD made the decision to set up a memorial scholarship for a student in the field of natural resources at HCC. The scholarship is administered through the Haywood Community College Foundation.
