Service Scholarships: Ed Walsh Scholarship: Ed Walsh was an AGS advisor from the Allan Hancock Chapter. It was his idea to give the first scholarships to students who have given outstanding service to their colleges, their chapters, and to their local communities. When Ed died in 1970, the State Advisory Board chose to honor him by presenting these service awards in his name. Charles Bell Scholarship: Charles Bell has served as an advisor to the students of Cabrillo College for over 30 years. As the secretary to the State Advisory Board, he works diligently to keep chapters informed of their status. He also is the expert on the corporation's Standing Rules and Bylaws, and is a trained parliamentarian. In 1998, the State Advisory Board chose to honor him by presenting the top service awards in his name. Academic Scholarships: Kathleen D. Loly Scholarship: Kathleen D. Loly was born in England and emigrated to the United States. She taught Spanish at Pasadena City College, and was one of the original founders of Alpha Gamma Sigma in 1926, which explains why Pasadena is the Alpha Chapter of AGS. Prior to her death in 1958, she bequeathed her estate to AGS, and these monies formed the basis of a stock portfolio from which AGS derives its ability to award scholarships each year. Under the able management of the Alpha Gamma Sigma Board of Trustees, the fund has now grown to over $250,000.00. Virginia Coffey Scholarship: For many years, the Zeta Chapter of Mt. San Antonio College was privileged to have Virginia Coffey as an advisor. Virginia was a counselor, beloved by students and faculty alike for her quick wit, storytelling, and sincere caring. During her lifetime it was her pleasure to present a scholarship to the two top Loly candidates. Today, we remember her as we continue that tradition by presenting the two scholarships in her honor. Local Club Scholarships: Alpha Psi Chapter Scholarship at Los Angeles Harbor College: The local club chapter decides and votes on how much will be spent (usually between $50.00-$250.00) for scholarships and how those scholarships will be divided. The club advisor chooses a team of readers who examine each club member's application and make their decisions.
