Richard and Patsy Bailey Welding Scholarship

  • A $500 scholarship to be awarded annually to a deserving Marshall High School, Waskom High School or Jefferson High School graduating senior who will be attending Texas State Technical College in Marshall, Texas to earn a certification in welding.

This scholarship, funded by the daughters of Patsy and Richard Bailey, was originally awarded in 2013 in recognition of their parents’ 60th wedding anniversary. It is available for annual award if a worthy applicant, based on financial need and strong work ethic, applies and is selected.

The Bailey daughters chose to create the welding scholarship in recognition of their father’s beginning career as a welder, a skill he perfected and took great pride in all his life. From his first job as a welder, Richard Bailey developed additional knowledge and skills that eventually led him to executive positions building highway superstructures, water systems, and bridges. He became internationally known for his leadership in updating and rebuilding refineries for some of the world’s largest petro-chemical corporations. Though born into extreme poverty and unable to complete a formal education, Mr. Bailey’s innate talents, gregarious personality and never-say-quit work ethic led him into a long career where he traveled the globe completing massive industrial projects that others often said were impossible to manage under such tight time and location constraints. Throughout his career, he was always encouraged and supported by his beloved wife, Patsy Lefler Bailey. Mr. Bailey died in 2009 after a lengthy battle against Alzheimer’s disease, but his work lives on in the many industrial and structural projects he completed. His life is an example to all of the American promise fulfilled.

Public Law 111-32 amends the Post-9/11 GI Bill (chapter 33) to include an additional category of eligible individuals.

  • If the child is eligible under ch30, ch1606, or ch1607 on 8/1/09, then he/she must relinquish eligibility under one of those programs to receive benefits under ch33.
  • A child's character of discharge from his/her own service does not impact eligibility resulting from the line of duty death of a parent.
  • A child on active duty will receive benefits at the active duty benefit rate (eligible for unlimited T&F but not eligible for monthly housing allowance or books & supplies stipend).
  • A child who meets the service requirements to transfer entitlement under ch33, may be eligible to transfer up to 36 months of entitlement to a dependent(s).

VA will begin accepting applications for individuals applying for benefits under the Fry Scholarship provision effective May 1, 2010.
