DAVID B. MADDREY SCHOLARSHIP FUND

In 1985, the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Ellis Cannady Chapter, IAEI established “The David B. Maddrey Scholarship Fund, Inc.”, in memory of David B. Maddrey.  Mr. Maddrey was the 1984 Southern

Section President and served as the North Carolina Ellis Cannady Chapter, IAEI Secretary-Treasurer from 1971 to 1984.  His career with the North Carolina Department of Insurance was from 1960 until his death in 1984.  He was employed in the State Electrical Inspector Division.

All who knew David were well aware of his dedication to the advancement of safety and the protection of life and property from the hazards of electricity and fire. David accumulated a wealth of knowledge over his more than forty years’ experience in the electrical field and always welcomed an opportunity to share this

knowledge with others. He derived a great deal of pleasure from serving his fellow man. He never refused to help someone who truly needed his assistance even when it cost him a great deal of time away from his

family that he loved dearly.

The Fund will grant scholarships in two categories as outlined in the Rules and Regulations (Below)

The Scholarship Fund accepts donations to be deposited in a financial institution with the interest earned being used to finance the scholarships.

The Scholarship Fund has been incorporated and is tax exempt.
