2019-2020 DAYTON MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

 

 

The Scholarship Committee was formed nineteen years ago when an anonymous and generous donor had the foresight to establish a Scholarship Fund to help young people pursue their educational goals. From that seed that was planted so long ago, others have been inspired to generously support the Scholarship Fund through personal donations provided as well as in memorial gifts in memory of past members of Dayton Memorial Church. To date more than $90,000 has been donated to the Scholarship Fund since its inception in 2000!

 

In order to be considered for this scholarship, a student has to meet initial qualifications of demonstrating financial need and continued qualifications including outstanding personal conduct and passing grades in all subjects studied. From the initial seed that was planted in 2000, with today’s awards, almost $87,000 has been awarded to 24 different students that have qualified to receive financial help with their college education. Obviously that seed planted long ago has sprouted and grown!

 

Congratulations to the FOUR students that have qualified to receive a scholarship for 2019-2020 academic year.
