Kathryn Marsh Coleman & James Coleman Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship is established in loving memory of Kathryn I. Marsh Coleman and her beloved son James H. Coleman. Kathryn had dreamed that one day the Poling farm might play host to handicapped/disabled children as a summer camp. That dream never came to fruition but this Fund fulfills the original dream by underwriting summer camp experience for these special young people.

Scholarships from this fund will benefit children with disabilities, ages 18 and under, by providing support for camp experiences.
