Gulfstream Aerospace has awarded 10 scholarships valued at $8,000 each to children of Gulfstream employees — including six children of Gulfstream employees in Savannah.

Through the Goldie Glenn Scholarship program, winners are awarded $2,000 a year, which is renewable for up to four years. Albert H. “Goldie” Glenn, a former Gulfstream vice chairman, spent 52 years in the aviation industry. The scholarship is a tribute to the outstanding leadership, service and respect Glenn brought to Gulfstream.

The following six winners were presented their scholarships by Joe Lombardo, president, Gulfstream Aerospace, at a ceremony held Thursday in Savannah: Joshua Futch, Richmond Hill; Brian Harrison, Hilton Head, S.C.; Paul Kimbal, Rincon; Jennie Murphy, Pooler; Sandra Nazareth, Savannah; and Lenae Simpson, Pooler.

Paul Kimbal, son of David and Joanna Kimbal of Rincon, is a graduating senior at South Effingham High School. He is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, Governor’s Honors Program and the All-State Honor Band, in which he was named first chair alto saxophone. He also participated in his high school’s marching band, Beta Club and soccer team.

Paul performed in his church’s adult and youth choirs and volunteered for the Red Cross. He plays saxophone for a wind ensemble group and participated in Teen Talent of Georgia. He worked part-time for Kimbal HVAC and gives saxophone lessons.

He plans to study music performance and education at the University of Georgia.
