Nina and Stewart Coulson

 After 15 years of being very active board members and supporters of the Dollars for Scholars program, Stewart & Nina Coulson decided to step down in 2011.  In 1996, they saw the need for an organization to help students with the rising college costs and thus founded the Charles City, Iowa chapter of DFS.  The Coulsons have given so much of their time to make the program what it is today.  Without their many hours of hard work, the program wouldn't have been able to touch as many people as we have to date.


To recognize Stewart & Nina for all of their past contributions, as a board, in November of 2011 we decided to honor them with a scholarship.  The "Founder's Scholarship" will be awarded annually in the amount of $500.00 to recognize the Coulson's tireless efforts and dedication to the Charles City Iowa Area Dollars for Scholars program.  Through this scholarship, we hope everyone will remember who started this great program.
