The Genesis Amateur Radio Society is moving to establish a scholarship fund to honor the memory of Silent Key George Manning, K1CG.
Manning, a Genesis ARS Executive Committee member and the club’s Public Information Officer, left a large quantity of ham radio equipment to the club. According to GARS President John Williams, KB1EVY, GARS is initially conducting a silent auction so that club members will have an opportunity to first purchase any items of interest. Remaining items will then be sold to the ham public.
“Proceeds from sales will be held by the trustee in a separate interest account until such time that the scholarhip fund is established, and then handed over to the scholarship trustee for their care,” says Williams.
