Pilot Club Scholarship Endowed, Named for Longtime Member

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

A scholarship that is given annually to a University of West Georgia student majoring in special education or speech-language pathology has recently become an endowed scholarship and has been given a new name.

The Pilot Club of Carrollton Scholarship was established in 1999 in honor of current and deceased members of the Carrollton Pilot Club. This year, the scholarship was renamed the Margaret N. Perkins Pilot Club of Carrollton Endowed Scholarship. Perkins has been an active member of the local club for 57 years, holding a number of elected and appointed offices. She also has held appointments at the district and international levels of the club and has given her time and talents to enrich the lives of others in the West Georgia community.

The Pilot Club is a worldwide service organization with a focus on brain-related disorders, including traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's, stroke and developmental, emotional and mental disabilities.
