The Avon Club is a social and community service organization with membership open to women age 18 or older who live or work in the Avonworth School District. In recognition of the Avon Club's 50th anniversary, the Avon Club Foundation Scholarship was established in 1995 and later expanded to offer two scholarships. In 2014, an additional scholarship was established in memory of club member Kathy Hall.
