Babbitt Family Scholarship
The Babbitt Family Scholarship was established in 2018 in memory of Bob and Helen Babbitt, by their children, Barb, Rick and Jim. Bob and Helen were both graduates of Albion High School and lifelong residents of Albion. Helen was a nurse at Arnold Gregory Memorial hospital for over 30 years and Bob worked in and eventually owned the Family Hardware until his retirement. Both were active members of the Albion community, participating in service organizations and the volunteer fire department. The scholarship is to be awarded to an Albion graduate pursuing a career in the nursing or medical field based on financial need and good academic standing. This scholarship is administered by the Albion High School Alumni Foundation.
We award one scholarship at $2,000.
