The purpose of the GCSC Sonny Hedges HSE Scholarship is to provide financial assistance to students majoring in Occupational Safety, Health, and Environment and encourage further education in the field. Here at Gulf Coast Safety Council, we believe that every person who leaves for work in the morning should expect to return home at night in good health.
