Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation Awards Scholarship in Memory of Earl C. Hargrove, Jr.
The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation recently awarded a scholarship after the late Earl C. Hargrove Jr., a Marine Corps veteran and the founder of Hargrove, Inc., the Lanham, Maryland-based event, trade show and exhibit design and fabrication company. On June 6, at the 29th Annual Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation’s Celebratory Gala, Carla Hargrove McGill, daughter of the late Mr. Hargrove and President of Hargrove Inc., alongside her husband, Tim McGill, Hargrove CEO, presented the Earl C. Hargrove Memorial Scholarship to Jessica Yount of Frederick, Maryland.
“We are humbled and honored to have a scholarship named after my father this year,” said Carla McGill, President of Hargrove, Inc. “We are even more ecstatic to present the Earl C. Hargrove Scholarship to Jessica Yount for her academic pursuits at Towson University. Jessica’s commitment to her education embodies the same commitment my father had each and every day to Hargrove, as well as to the Marine Corps and the families of the Marine Corps.”
Hargrove, Inc. donated the stage set and photo opportunity area for the gala, which took place at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, DC. Hargrove has been involved with the décor for the event and supporting the foundation for more than a dozen years, and this year’s gala raised $1,054,754 to support education of Marine children.
The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is the nation’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children – especially those whose Marine or Navy Corpsmen parents were killed or wounded in combat. Since its foundation in 1962 by Gen Martin F. Rockmore USMC (Ret.), the Scholarship Foundation has provided more than $90,000,000 among 33,000 scholarships. This year’s gala raised more than $1 million to support the education for children of Marines, and the Foundation was able to offer 2,300 scholarships.
