Hal Baldwin Scholarship 2012
The Hal Baldwin Scholarship encourages young people to consider public service and is named after the Schertz mayor who has given 30 years of service to the city.
As Schertz residents since the 1960s, Mayor Baldwin and wife Barbara have seen the city grow from 5,000 residents to nearly 40,000 and become San Antonio’s largest suburban city.
Baldwin, a retired Air Force Senior Master Sergeant, has served Schertz as an assistant city manager, civic volunteer, city councilman and then mayor (for nearly 17 years).
In recognition of Baldwin’s long service, the Schertz City Council established his namesake scholarship to encourage high school seniors (public, private, or home-schooled) who are residents of Schertz to consider public service as a career path.
The $1,000 annual scholarship is awarded annually on a competitive basis.
The scholarship may be used for tuition or other fees or expenses for any postsecondary school which is accredited by a state, regional, or national accreditation agency and which may be a traditional 2- or 4-year institution or other educational institution offering courses, degrees, or other training suitable to a public service career.
