Now accepting applications for the 2023 Charlie Tribble Conservation Scholarships!
The Harrison County Conservation District is honored to offer $1,000 scholarship(s) in memory of Charlie Tribble, a board member that served for 37 years until his passing in September 2013. Mr. Tribble had a passion for education and was dedicated to sharing that passion and passing it on to our youth. The conservation district hopes that with these scholarships, we are able to help the recipients follow their dreams and pursue their passion through education.
