Nancy and Ted Paup Big Country Hall of Fame Scholarship

This fund was established by Nancy and Ted Paup in 2011 to award scholarships to students from Abilene, Cooper, and Albany High School since these schools had a significant impact on their lives. “We loved living in Abilene and have great memories of our time there. Abilene was the perfect place to raise our daughters, such a welcoming community…” said Nancy. “Looking back, it was community involvement that actually first introduced us to the Foundation.” Ted noted, “We knew every aspect would be taken care of prudently, from the criteria to selection process, and that our scholarship would become a permanent part of Abilene.”
