Dennis and Evelyn Chapman wanted to share their great admiration for Dennis’s father Carl and mother Goldie with a lasting gift that would not only honor them for all time, but make it possible for people to achieve a dream that eluded Carl throughout his life. Charles (Carl) Chapman was born the second child and oldest boy in a family of thirteen children. His parents were tenant farmers and his father had intermittent health problems. From a very early age Carl was awakened early in the morning to help with milking dairy cows and other morning chores prior to going to school. In later years, as the family grew, Carl would of necessity drop out of high school to help with the farming necessary to keep the family intact. But he had a very strong desire to complete his high school education and move on to a higher level. Carl’s determination is reflected in the 1924 yearbook of Greenfield High School where he is pictured as a 22 year old high school senior, but he couldn’t complete that year either. Let it be clear that this was not a matter of academic ability; he was a very intelligent individual. Carl made one more attempt, this time to attend Central Normal College in Danville, Indiana but this was terminated short of fruition also. It should be noted that all his siblings who reached maturity, save one, received high school diplomas, three received Bachelor Degrees and one went on to a Doctorate. Carl then married Goldie Ann Keller and they started their family of four children, eventually moving the family to a farm on the south side of Greenfield. The farm would be named Cargold Farm and it helped nurture the children to maturity. The farm eventually became the Chapman Estates Addition to the City of Greenfield. The first $2,000 Cargold Scholarship will be awarded this coming spring. Dennis and Evelyn used a creative planned tool called a Charitable Gift Annuity that will generate income to them during their lifetime and mature fully to endow the scholarship fund at their death.
