This scholarship was established in loving memory of G.L. Kingsmore, who set a great example of true sportsmanship in all the activities he coached. He insisted on hard work, yet always encouraged young people to be the best they could be, to finish school and be active members of the community. As a teacher for over 35 years, he stimulated thought about the way our nation functions as a free country. In addition he served the greater community as councilman and mayor. In all ways he was a positive influence on young and old alike with his integrity, wisdom and love of athletics.
The intent is to award one (1) $1,000 scholarship for 2017.

1. Applicants must be graduating seniors of Marysville High School (not restricted to athletes).
