Lee A. Walker Memorial Scholarship
 
Amount:
Varies
Awards:
Varies
Deadline:
May 16
The Lee A. Walker Memorial Scholarship Fund was founded in 2007 by Renee (Walker) Huether in memory of her son Lee, who died tragically while attending college in upstate New York in the same year. Then, just a few short months later, Renee herself passed away from cancer. But before she left us, she conveyed her intent to grow the scholarship to assist students who wished to pursue an education in the fields of interest that Lee had expressed; Forestry, Environmental, and Agriculture. He was, after all, a young man raised in the deep rooted farming traditions of Bakersfield and Enosburg Falls, Vermont. He loved the area, and the people. He was a strong leader at his high school, and in his community, and would offer help to anyone in need. The applicant will: Have plans to attend a post high school graduate institution whether it be college, trade or technical school. (Interest in Environmental, Forestry, or Agricultural preferred but not required.) Have demonstrated good leadership throughout his or her high school career. Have a GPA at the minimum college level acceptance of a 2.5. Have provided the requirements of the application. Have submitted the application no later than May 16 of their graduating year.
