The Dr. Glenn L. Ethridge Scholarship Announced


On July 16, 2020, Rev. Dr. Julie Boone, The North Georgia Annual Conference Board of Ministry Chair, announced the establishment of the Dr. Glenn L. Ethridge Scholarship Endowment for United Methodist students during their virtual Clergy Executive Session. Boone recognized Rev. Dr. Glenn Ethridge, former Chair of the Board of Ordained Ministry and Oak Grove UMC Pastor Emeritus, for his leadership and many years of faithful service within the Annual Conference.
