This scholarship is funded through family donations. David Poole was a local businessman who was very much interested in the youth of our area. His family and business supported many youth organizations including the local FFA, 4-H and VICA programs. He also employed many young people in his business over the years, often giving them the experience of their first full time job. The scholarship recognizes those facts by distributing its annual scholarships to FFA senior members who will continue their education post high school and to students enrolled in the Industrial Mechanics program of Eagle Point High School who will enroll in related post high school programs.
