Michael Welborn Grant

A portion of the proceeds from each year's tour will be used to fund the Michael Welborn Education Grant. The grant is awarded to a College Park school for a history-related activity.

During the 27 years he lived in Orlando, the late Michael Welborn made major contributions to the community in general and particularly to the cause of historic preservation.

publix_sign.pngWhile serving the College Park Neighborhood Association as Historical Committee co-chair and Vice-president he was instrumental in saving the landmark Publix sign at Edgewater Drive and in rescuing the bird frescoes now installed at the College Park Community Center. fresco.pngThe frescoes, by noted artist Sam Stoltz, were part of Stoltz’s 1930’s work at the Dubsdread Clubhouse. Monitoring the 1990-1991 remodeling of the clubhouse daily, Michael averted the frescoes’ destruction.

Michael also chaired the City’s Historic Preservation Board, served on the boards of the Historical Society of Central Florida and the United Way, and was active in politics. He was an account executive for AT&T.

After Michael’s untimely death in 1999, the College Park Neighborhood Association voted to name a scholarship in his memory. The school grants that CPNA now gives instead of scholarships continue to bear Michael’s name. The grant money is raised during CPNA’s Annual Tour of Homes.
