Built on a Legacy


Midland's Legacy Scholarship Program is built on the legacy left by four great Midland families—Gladys and George T. Abell, Helen and Barney Greathouse, Harriet and J. Harvey Herd and Dorothy and Clarence Scharbauer, Jr.—who invested their time and resources to help build a community.

In 1986, Abell-Hanger Foundation established a Midland College scholarship that paid tuition for Midland County high school graduates.  In 2003, the Helen Greathouse Charitable Trust partnered with Abell-Hanger Foundation, and the scholarship was named Midland's Legacy Scholarship.  In 2006, a third Midland family foundation—the Chaparral Foundation—joined this rich tradition of supporting MC students in their pursuit of higher education.  That tradition continued to grow when the Scharbauer Foundation united with the other three family foundations to support this great educational legacy.
