As long time Methodists, Harold and Margaret Young were passionate about providing opportunities for young people to accept Christ as their personal savior. For their 50th and 60th anniversary celebrations as well as their memorials, cash donations were given to support youth missions at Gibson City United Methodist Church.
Harold and Margaret also strongly believed in the value of higher education and wanted their children, grandchildren and all young people to “get the education they needed to be able to support themselves.”
Because of their dedication to the spiritual and educational attainment of young people, Harold and Margaret’s children are hoping to raise $20,000 to endow a $1,000 scholarship to be given annually to a United Methodist student attending a United Methodist-related college or university. To continue the scholarship in perpetuity, only the income from the endowment will be used each year.
The Harold and Margaret Young Memorial Scholarship Endowment will be matched by the student’s United Methodist Church, the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation, and the college/university the student attends, thereby providing a total scholarship award of $4000 for the student’s tuition.
