A Waldo couple, Dr. David and Alice Bailey, have pledged $50,000 to create an endowed scholarship fund for Tri-Rivers Career Center graduates to attend Marion Technical College.

The Baileys have called Marion home for over 35 years, and they wanted to support the community’s education through a donation that could be used for one or more students with financial need to pay for tuition, books or living expenses.

The first Dr. David and Alice Bailey Scholarship Fund scholarship is to be awarded for Fall Semester 2022.  

Dr. David Bailey, a retired Marion-area otolaryngologist, and his wife Alice, who worked at both Tri-Rivers and Marion Tech throughout her career in education, wanted to give back to the community and felt the best way to do so would be through the scholarship toward education.
