Paul and Jean Pearson met at a reunion for the NTC Architectural/Residential Design program, and were married for over twenty years. When Paul was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, the family thought that a scholarship through the NTC Foundation would be the most meaningful gift they could give to him and Jean. The scholarship was established as a 2012 Christmas gift just before Paul passed away. Since five members of the Pearson family attended and received degrees from NTC (four from the Architectural/Residential Design program), this scholarship supports students in that program.

The Pearson Family continues to honor Paul’s spirit with this scholarship, which has grown over time to become an endowment, and will support students for years to come.
