. King scholarship established at HCC

Interstate Storage & Distribution, family and friends have established the Tommy J. King Memorial Scholarship to be awarded to a student who maintains a 3.0 GPA and is enrolled at least part-time at HCC. Applicants will need to provide recommendation letters recognizing their citizenship qualities as well as community involvement through volunteer activities or leadership roles. Eligible students will also need to demonstrate financial need through a written statement. The scholarship will recognize and promote academic achievement for a student enrolled at HCC who is in need of financial assistance.


Wanting to do something in memory of his father, David King, who is a member of the HCC Foundation Board, decided to establish the scholarship. “It is something I wanted to do and waited for the time to be right,” he said.
