In reference to my blog entry on students losing HOPE, especially students in tough majors, someone sent me a note about the scholarship that Ken Faulkner established at his beloved Georgia Tech for students who lost HOPE.
I went to the Tech scholarship list and there it was:Mary and Kenneth Faulkner: Awards to undergraduate students who lost the HOPE scholarship due to their grade point average.
I found a short piece about Mr. Faulkner who graduated Tech in 1950 and died in 2005. When he bestowed the scholarship, he dubbed it a scholarship for HOPE-less students. In 2007, the initial year of the scholarship, eight students received it.
Mr. Faulkner probably knew how tough his alma mater was. So, he did a very kind thing for the students following behind him.
