Pat and David Coffey established the Steven L. Coffey Memorial Scholarship Fund in honor of their son, to assist students who possess the potential for excellence but may require some additional support in achieving their educational goals. Steven L. Coffey was a talented and successful business and family man who believed in the power of opportunity and education. This scholarship fund is intended to benefit Anderson County residents, both recent high school graduates and adult residents, who wish to pursue a college education at the community college level. Grants are awarded on the basis of a demonstrated financial need, the desire to pursue a postsecondary education and the potential for academic excellence.
