As an extension of the Ellis-Scott Gardens, a separate 501c (3) Non-Profit, The Pavilion Society Charitable Foundation, Inc., has been established by family members. One of its programs is to grant scholarships to graduating seniors from Roane County High School. It is intended to be an annual award for several students. Applications may be downloaded from the school website or obtained from the guidance counselor at Roane County High School. Donations for the use of the Ellis-Scott Pavilion will benefit this scholarship program.

The Pavilion Society Scholarship Awards

The Pavilion Society Scholarships honor Evalynn Ellis Hobgood and Alma Lee Ellis Scott, lifetime residents of Roane County who positively influenced generations of Roane County’s children through educational training and family guidance.  Evalynn was a pioneer in education, as a teacher and principal.  Alma Lee was a teacher, business woman, and counselor.  Also honored are sisters Barbara Jean Ellis Terrell and Flosetta Ellis Ervin Gibson who likewise were educators from the Ellis family.

The Pavilion Society Scholarships are funded through the Pavilion Society Charitable Foundation, Inc., a public foundation founded by Robert H. Sinclair and Jean Ellis Scott Sinclair, Hudson McDonald Hobgood and Bonnie Pavlenda Hobgood, Robert L. Scott and Joan Akers Scott.  We are grateful that our Ellis family mentors instilled in us an appreciation of education, since education provides a pathway to greater opportunity and success in life. Through these Scholarships we honor our Ellis family educators by providing students of Roane County High School assistance toward their continuing education.
