Gail Culver Scholarship Fund

Date Established: December 14, 2020

The Gail Culver Scholarship honors the memory of Gail Culver. Teaching was not just a profession for Gail; it was a lifestyle. She taught, motivated, encouraged and inspired those around her all the time. Gail worked hard to build, foster and maintain positive relationships with each and every student. Her care and compassion impacted many and she changed lives for the better.

The selection of students for consideration will be made by a selection committee consisting of the Port Jervis High School special education department. The final selection of the student(s) to be awarded the scholarship will be determined by Michael Culver and Amanda Davis and will be awarded at the Port Jervis High School Scholarship night.
