Mary and George Minter Memorial Scholarship
The Mary and George Minter Memorial Scholarship was established by their daughters, Martha Ferguson and Sally Duncan Walls, to honor their parents’ dedication to education and the community of Abilene. Mary Minter was instrumental in establishing the AISD Special Education Program as well as being a founding member of the Junior League of Abilene. George Minter served as Abilene Chamber President and Mayor for the City of Abilene. For many years, the Minter family owned Minter’s Department Stores (originally known as Minter’s Dry Goods when it opened as the first department store in Taylor County).
