Announcing the Theodore Drury Stowe Science & Technology Scholarship at South Point High School Belmont, North Carolina
Just over one hundred years ago, my father was born in Gaston County.  The Great Depression, the early death of his father and World War II all got in the way his being able to pursue a college degree. However, for his entire life he pursued knowledge wherever he went. He developed the Quality Control Testing Laboratory for R. L. Stowe Mills which he managed until his retirement in 1983. As a lasting legacy to his belief that scientific knowledge was the key to a brighter future, his family is proud to announce the creation of the Theodore Drury Stowe Science & Technology Scholarship.  Each year, it will provide a renewable $1000 scholarship award to a graduating South Point High School Senior who plans to major in a scientific field at an accredited university. You can honor his memory and help our students achieve their goals by contributing to the scholarship fund. We hope it will be able to grow with time to keep pace with the ever rising cost of college tuition.
