The scholarship fund was created to honor the lives of two young people from this congregation, Jimmy Scholin and Todd Weems, both of whom were college-aged when they died. The Scholin family made an initial contribution in Jimmy’s memory in 1976 with additional gifts received from the Langenberg estate and other members and friends of Trinity. Beginning in 1982, contributions were received in Todd’s memory. Gifts to the fund continue to be received in memory of these two young men today.
To be eligible for a scholarship, a student must be a member of Trinity Presbyterian Church, must be at least a senior in high school at the time of application and must use the funds to further a college education at an accredited institution. In making their award selections, the Committee will take into consideration the financial need, academic achievement, and the interest and leadership shown by the applicant in the programs and affairs of Trinity Presbyterian Church and the wider community. It should be stressed that college students as well as high school seniors are invited to apply. Previous scholarship recipients are encouraged to reapply.
This year’s application deadline is midnight on Sunday, May 2nd. We will notify scholarship recipients near the end of May and recognize them in worship on June 6th.
