Lindsay and Eleanor Hall established the scholarship in honor of the Bedford County Farm Bureau for graduates of high schools in Bedford County. Mr. Hall was president of the Bedford County Farm Bureau for five years, a director for 52 years, and a member for 57 years. Mrs. Hall, a teacher, retired from the Bedford County School System.
The scholarship is awarded for two academic semesters, with $1,000 paid per semester. The Hall Scholarship and similar scholarships are awarded through the Motlow College Foundation. Anyone can contribute to existing scholarships or establish new ones.
