Wayne Etter Endowed Scholarship
Wayne Etter was never one to rest on his laurels. He always wanted to try a little harder, to do a little better. His career started in Franklin where he worked as a horse trainer. He went on to work in a coal mine and then to run a production facility during W.W. II. He climbed through the corporate ranks and served as president at two different companies, including the Bostic Group of Emhart, Inc., from which he retired in 1985. Mr. Etter has served on the boards of directors of several corporate and non-profit organizations. He remains committed to encouraging others to conduct business with a positive attitude. Mr. Etter established the scholarship in his name to benefit young people who might not otherwise be able to afford a college education and to encourage students who possess common sense and a willingness to work hard and maintain a positive attitude.
The Wayne Etter Endowed Scholarship is available to students who otherwise would not be able to attend Franklin College and who maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher.
