A. T. Brightwell Schools, Inc.

Guy R. Brightwell, a former resident of Maxeys and this home, bequeathed his large estate to this corporation in memory of his father, Augustine Thomas Brightwell, and is used for the education of students of this locality.

The Brightwell scholarships have been administered for many years. Mr. Brightwell was a great advocate of education. Generations of students have benefited with up to 80% of their tuition being paid, the only stipulation being that they live within two miles of Maxeys and maintain passing grades.
