A dedicated public servant to his constituents and having served as North Carolina’s 6th District Congressman for 30 years, J. Howard Coble was a statesman committed to making NC a leader in education.  With education at the forefront, Howard Coble’s nephew, Dr. Ray Coble and his wife Chris created a scholarship fund with the Foundation in honor of Congressman Coble.

Known for his high moral character  and good citizenship, this scholarship looks to support incoming college freshmen who demonstrate the ideals and leadership qualities modeled by J. Howard Coble. 

Howard Coble represented North Carolina’s 6th District from January 3, 1985 until January 3, 2015, making him the longest serving Republican congressman in North Carolina history. Prior to his terms in the US House, Coble served in the North Carolina House of Representatives from 1979 until 1985. In addition to his distinguished career as a leader and legislator, he earned a reputation as being a dedicated public servant to his constituents. Folks back home knew they could count on Howard.
