Hubert Bastin Memorial Scholarship Fund – 1310

Fund Type: Passthrough Scholarship Fund


Fund Description:


The Purpose of this scholarship is to honor the memory of Hubert Bastin, who led an exemplary life as loving husband, patriotic and decorated soldier in the Pacific theatre of World War II, caring and compassionate father of four, teacher, coach and public school administrator. He is remembered with great gratitude and warm fondness by an overwhelming cohort of citizens who know personally of his humble but life-changing work as teacher and coach prior to his retirement in 1981.

The scholarship is now for one $500 award for any college expenses and is not renewable. The award is offered each year to a Martinsville High School senior who has a great desire, but not the financial support, to further her or his education in a vocational, technical, or professional career. Although not a requirement, it is desired that the applicants shall have attended Poston Road Elementary School.

All gifts received for the fund should be made payable to the Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc., and marked with a memo naming the fund. A one-time gift, or perhaps an annual donation to help build the scholarship fund over time, would be greatly appreciated. Gifts to the CFMC are fully tax deductible.
