Adam Kincaid Memorial Scholarship

Applications for the 2023 school year are now closed. Congrats to Tymon Childs of Ashbrook High School as the recipient of the Adam M. Kincaid Memorial Scholarship. Tymon will be attending Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island this fall. 

We are pleased to invite graduating seniors from Gaston County Schools to apply for the Adam M. Kincaid Memorial Scholarship. Strong Like AK will award one $5,000 scholarship to a deserving senior in 2023. 


Adam was a junior at South Point HS when he passed in October 2020. He had a contagious personality that could fill a room and he exuded numerous qualities that left a lasting impression on many who knew him. This scholarship is not academic merit-based. It is our desire to award this scholarship to a young adult who will serve as a reminder of Adam's perseverance, strength, compassion, and positivity.

Please see your current Gaston County HS guidance counselor to apply for the

Adam M. Kincaid Memorial Scholarship. Application packets can also be downloaded here or from a desktop computer. Please print and return the completed application packet to your guidance counselor by April 17, 2023. 

Please email with any questions.
