About the scholarship
In September 2016, Dr. Ray Coble, a local veterinarian, and his wife Chris Coble, established the J. Howard Coble Scholarship Fund, through the High Point Community Foundation, to honor and perpetuate the memory and good work of his uncle, Howard Coble.
Congressman Coble served 30 years in the U.S. House of Representatives. Hands-on care for his constituents was a hallmark of Coble’s service to North Carolina and the nation for decades.
The High Point Community Foundation manages the scholarship fund and oversees the application and award process.
The Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to strengthening a diverse, healthy and productive community for both present and future generations. It promotes philanthropy, builds and maintains a permanent collection of endowment funds and serves as a trustworthy partner and leader in responding to community needs.
