Jaclyn White of Gwinnett County has endowed a memorial scholarship at Georgia Gwinnett College in honor of her husband, Carl D. White, Sr., announced Lori Buckheister, director of Development.

“My husband worked in law enforcement in Gwinnett County for 30 years. He loved his work, but on or off the job, he was always concerned about helping other people,” White said. “He'd go out of his way to assist a neighbor, or even a stranger, and never expect anything back. I thought establishing this scholarship in his name would be a great way to combine his career in law enforcement with his dedication to helping other people.”

The Carl D. White, Sr. Scholarship Fund will provide support for students who are dependent children of full-time employees of the Gwinnett County Police Department, the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office, city police jurisdictions located within Gwinnett County or Gwinnett County Public Schools resource officers. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate financial need. Recipients must maintain a minimum grade point average and may renew the scholarship for up to four years. 

“We appreciate all endowed scholarships,” Buckheister said. “However, memorial scholarships are particularly meaningful, and it is a privilege to honor a loved one’s legacy in this way.”

As an endowment, the Carl D. White Sr. Scholarship Fund will provide a permanent source of scholarship support.
