Welcome to the Gina Guthrie Scholarship Fund! Our mission is to award scholarships to deserving college students in memory of Gina Guthrie. Gina was a beacon of light to all who knew her and her passing from cancer in January of 2019 was a great tragedy. In order to keep her memory alive, this fund was started in her name with the goal of providing financial assistance to students in need. We awarded our first 2 scholarships in the summer of 2020 and have made 6 more awards since, bringing the total amount of scholarships provided to $20,000 in just 4 years. Please explore our site to learn more about Gina and her legacy, get to know our recipients, and donate to the fund to help other students live the dream life she had.
We are excited to announce our Fall 2023 Kappa Delta scholarship recipient is Freya Garcia! Freya is an amazing young woman who is in her final year at the University of Florida and is destined to do great things after. Our board had a REALLY tough time determining a winner for this award as the applicants had some amazing essays and represented an incredibly diverse group of KD Ladies. Please check out our "Recipients" page to read Freya's winning essay and learn a little more about her, what she's had to overcome, and her life goals. And, while you're there, you can also read about our Cabarrus County Spring 2023 scholarship recipient Lemi Henderson, who is now a freshman at N.C. State.
Gina lived life to the fullest during her time with us. She graduated from the University of Florida, traveled the world, started her own business, and created a family full of love. Her life serves as an example to all of us on how one should live, love, and laugh every chance they get and to make the most of each moment.
If you are interested in donating or helping the fund reach its goals, please reach out to us and we will respond as soon as possible. Or, if you are a student and wish to know more about our scholarship availability and requirements, please send us an e-mail and we will fill you in on the process for applicants. Thanks!
