The Jim Scogin Memorial Endowed Scholarship is named for James "Jim" Hillman Scogin, Jr., who was the father of Laurie Halvorson, a former Board Officer, former GBAC President, and now current member of the GBAC Advisory Board. Although Jim did not attend Auburn, he was fortunate to marry an Auburn graduate and became a devoted Auburn Fan and Supporter of Auburn University. He joined the Shelby County Auburn Club in 1990 and became actively involved in the Club. He was elected Vice President of the Club in 1996 and held that position until his untimely death in 1998. Following his death, his parents gave a full scholarship in his name through the Shelby County Auburn Club.
