Hinton Area Foundation

Application Information


Scholarship Overview

Beulah and Ellsworth's children created this scholarship to honor their parents, who enjoyed 54 years of marriage. Ellsworth's career was typical of many of our distinguished teachers. He graduated from Talcott High School in 1935, attended Concord for two years and began teaching in 1937. His schools, many being one-room schoolhouses, included River Ridge, Tempa, Davis, Griffiths Creek, Mt. View, Talcott, Crossroads and Hinton High School. Ellsworth's extraordinary career spanned 44 years, science and history dominating his later years. Many of his students became "Golden Horseshoe" winners. Beulah (nee Garten), raised in Tampa, married Ellsworth in 1939 becoming his greatest supporter. A fulltime housewife she took special joy in both her immediate and extended family. The scholarship is given to a student who is a "Golden Horseshoe" winner, a strong social studies or science student, and chosen by the social studies and science faculty at Summers County High School.
