Salem Glen College Assistance Program

Up to $2,500. The program awards financial assistance with a two-year degree or career certification program from Forsyth Tech or DDCC. Also, it provides a mentor pairing to scholarship recipients to help the student navigate their education and career path. Mentors will be selected volunteers from the Salem Glen neighborhood.

The award is given in honor of Richard and Patricia Bunker. An electrical engineer by trade, Richard Bunker and his wife, Pat, valued education above all else and believed that everyone had the right to higher education. In his retirement, Richard found great joy in tutoring all levels and ages of students, ranging from middle school through graduate school. He and Pat would have fully supported the great things that Salem Glen and the Shallow Ford Foundation are doing by not only providing financial assistance to deserving students but offering a mentor to take the journey with them. This award is given in loving remembrance, thanks to their daughters.
