The Baileys have created this scholarship specifically to benefit Tri-Rivers Career Center students. Alice spent 20 years as a Career Development Specialist at the school. Both she and David feel strongly about helping students pursuing non-traditional post-secondary educational goals such as apprenticeships and the trades.
Accordingly, the scholarship supports students pursuing an education in the field of trades, apprenticeship, and skilled labor, and two-year degree programs in the fields offered by Tri-Rivers.
The Baileys have also established a scholarship through Marion Technical College Foundation. MTCF created an endowment with Marion Community Foundation, the MTCF Dr. David & Alice Bailey Fund, to support this scholarship, making it the 30th such endowment fund that MTCF has created with Marion Community Foundation.
