The Mike Eaton and Jay A. Graybeal Scholarship Information

The Historical Society of Carroll County provides two scholarships for Carroll County students: The Mike Eaton Scholarship and the Jay A. Graybeal Scholarship.

The Mike Eaton Scholarship honors the memory of William Granville “Mike” Eaton, English teacher at Westminster High School from 1935 to 1971, with a student scholarship and through recognition of outstanding teachers.  The $500 scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior from Westminster High School, based on an essay about that student’s most influential teacher. That teacher will also be recognized through this scholarship.

The Jay A. Graybeal Scholarship is named in honor of former HSCC Executive Director, Jay A. Graybeal, now the Chief Curator of the U.S. Heritage Museum in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
