Kyle Glenn Holcombe Memorial Scholarship Awarded to South Georgia Tech’s Tyler Becton
The Kyle Glenn Holcombe Memorial Scholarship was presented to South Georgia Technical College Electrical Lineworker student Tyler Becton of Sylvania, GA recently.
The Kyle Glenn Holcombe Memorial Scholarship fund was established and endowed by Georgia Transmission and Aubrey Silvey Enterprises in memory of Kyle Glenn Holcombe, a 23-year old electrical worker who was employed by Aubry Silvey Enterprises in Carrollton, Georgia.
Becton expressed his appreciation to the Holcombe family and to the South Georgia Technical College Foundation for the scholarship opportunity.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to be considered for this scholarship. This is a great scholarship in honor of a great man and I am so appreciative to have the opportunity to attend South Georgia Tech’s Electrical Lineworker program and also to be awarded the Kyle Glenn Holcombe Memorial Scholarship,” said Becton. “I thank the Holcombe family for implementing this scholarship but I am also very sorry for your loss.”
The Kyle Glenn Holcombe Memorial Scholarship was the first scholarship designated specifically to the SGTC Electrical Lineworker program. This is the second scholarship awarded this year in memory of Kyle Glenn Holcombe.
Kyle Glenn Holcombe was born January 21, 1981 at North East Alabama Regional Medical Center in Anniston, Alabama. His parents are Glenn and Joni Holcombe of Fruithurst, Alabama. He was a loving, hard working young man with many hopes and dreams and will be missed by his parents, as well as his sister, Tracy, and her husband Marc Mayfield, and their two children Annsley and Austen.
“We hope this scholarship will have a long lasting impact on the lives of the young men and women who will benefit from this gift,” said Kyle’s mother, Mrs. Joni Holcombe. “Kyle was an extraordinary young man and we hope that this scholarship will be a tribute to his memory as well as provide assistance to other deserving, outstanding students.”
The Kyle Glenn Holcombe Memorial Scholarship endowment guarantees indefinite educational opportunities and will impact electrical lineworker students at SGTC for many years. Each recipient of the Kyle Glenn Holcombe Memorial Scholarship will receive a photo of Kyle and a note from the family congratulating them on their accomplishment as well as give them some background information about the young man for whom the scholarship is named for.
