Footnote: The GBC Ruth Ice Scholarship Fund was established from a gift from Ruth Ice. Ruth, a GBC member, school teacher and Sunday School teacher proclaimed her interest in young people and the importance of education in their lives. The GBC Ruth Ice Scholarship was increased, back in 2008, to include applicants who would like to renew their scholarship for their sophomore, and/or junior years of college.  In May of 2013 this was increased again to include college seniors and those pursuing advanced degrees.
