For the fourth straight year, the Martha Geib Memorial Cruise-In brought together members of the London community to enjoy classic cars and fellowship to benefit local students.
The cruise-in took place on July 28. The event’s organizers presented a $4,000 donation to the London Academic Achievement Boosters at the Sept. 10 London school board meeting. Marshall Geib, Martha’s husband and a member of the Boosters, accepted the check.
The donation is earmarked for scholarships in memory of Dr. Martha Geib, a London graduate who worked as a pediatrician in the community and served on the London school board. Students are chosen for the scholarship based on academics and community service.
“Martha believed that in order for communities to survive, they need social capital–individuals willing to get involved,” said Stephanie Huddleston, one of the event organizers. “The committee wants to the thank the community for their support of the cruise-in each year.”
In addition to Huddleston, the committee includes Marci Bogenrife, Melissa Canney, Connie Dwyer, Christina Finney, Bonnie Hamilton and Terri Miller.
