Overview:

The Charles A. Reid Memorial Scholarship was established by Mrs. Majorie Reid in loving memory of her husband. Mr. Reid was very involved in the Owensboro community and served on the Owensboro-Daviess County Community Foundation (currently the Green River Area Community Foundation) for several years. Mr. Reid was concerned about the Owensboro Community, children’s education, and particularly fond of Brescia University.
