Coe Noack Memorial Scholarship


Coe Noack was an incredibly intelligent, funny, individualistic young man. His close friends looked up to him because he questioned them on all of the uncertainties of this world. Coe did not follow the traditional high school education and elected to attend Project Ready (now known as Thomas Edison Academy) to get his high school diploma. At age 19, he died unexpectedly, two days after he was accepted to Job Corps. He left behind three sisters and one brother.

The Coe Noack Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who has attended Thomas Edison Academy through senior year or who has experienced an obstacle in his or her life that made graduation a challenge. Recipients also must plan to attend a college or vocational school upon graduation. Established in 2009, this scholarship gives students help in pursuing their goals and allows Coe’s legacy to live on.

"The Community Foundation gave me the opportunity to give to the most people possible."
