The Gregg County Historical Museum is sponsoring a scholarship essay contest in honor of Mr. Walter Northcutt. Mr. Northcutt has been involved with the Gregg County Historical Museum since the museum founding when his father, W.D. Northcutt began bringing him to museum events as he was growing up. In the late 1990's Walter Northcutt began his 20 year tenure on the GCHM Board of Directors, serving as board president for 10 years. In 2015, Mr. Northcutt received the Pauline Cargill Award. Mr. Northcutt has been a longtime loyal friend to GCHM, attending events and exhibits, volunteering his time and providing financial support. He has spent many hours in the museum pursuing his love of academia and continued the family legacy by encouraging his children to volunteer with GCHM as well.
The scholarship is designed to promote the history of Gregg County and introduce the resources of the Gregg County Museum to a new generation of scholars. The scholarship program is open to all Gregg County 12th grade students.
