PITTSBORO — Ed and Mary Hayes Holmes, of Pittsboro, have established the Edward S. and Mary Hayes B. Holmes Endowment with the Central Carolina Community College Foundation.
The endowment will fund a $500 scholarship for the 2008-09 school year and a $1,000 scholarship in future years for students attending Central Carolina C.C. To be eligible to apply for it, students must have a grade point average of 2.5 (C-plus) or better. Preference will be given to students residing in Chatham County.
“We have so many students in financial need,” said Diane Glover, Foundation executive director. “It is always so wonderful when generous community members help to make it possible for them to continue their education.”
Ed was a long-time attorney in Pittsboro and is now a member of the CCCC Foundation Board of Directors.
“The community has done so much for us that we wanted to give back,” he said.
The Holmes have also given a generous donation to the Chatham County Community Library, a joint project of the college and Chatham County being built on the college’s Chatham County Campus.
“Ed and Mary Holmes are long-time friends of Central Carolina Community College,” said President Matt Garrett. “We appreciate their generosity, which will help students achieve their dreams for generations to come. Chatham County is blessed to have such generous people.”
