Byrd Family Scholarship

This scholarship is awarded annually to a Middle Georgia State University student with demonstrated financial need, who graduated from a Houston County High School within the past ten years and is pursuing a degree in education or nursing. The fund was established by Mark Byrd, owner of Byrd and Company, in honor of his wife, Amy Byrd, and in recognition of the genuine love and devotion she expressed to the children she taught as a special education and kindergarten teacher in the Houston County School System, as well as her commitment to her family as a wife and mother. The scholarship also honors Mr. Byrd’s mother, Betty Byrd, for her contributions to her family and community as a registered nurse, active member of Centerville First United Methodist Church, Master Gardener, wife and mother.
