Margaret Holley Legacy (MHL)
In 2021, Teachers’ Heritage Educational Partners LLC. created the Margaret Holley Legacy (MHL) Scholarship, a book scholarship for high school seniors that have made a difference in the lives of others by consistently providing support, displaying a pleasant demeanor, exhibiting kindness towards others and having a willingness to help.
Margaret Holley made a difference in the lives of her family and the lives of others. She never held flashy titles or positions. She just smiled and worked, but others knew that they could depend on her because of her strong and consistent work ethic!!! It’s amazing how a smile and a work ethic opened doors for her.
