2014 and Beyond

Thank you to all who have come to visit our website over the years!  After much prayer and thoughtful consideration, we have decided it is time for the Faith & Education Scholarship Fund to close its doors.  We believe that we have honored our dear friend Tessie through helping a number of students fund their college education.  Thank you to all of who have helped honor her through donating financially to the Fund and have volunteered their time in support of the scholarships we have been able to offer.  At the same time as we are closing our doors, we are excited to announce that the award of last year’s Tessie Eerligh Scharing Memorial Scholarship winner, Jaime Leonard, has been extended to fund all four years of her undergraduate college career.  We are excited to be able to offer this particular opportunity to such an amazing young woman.  We believe that she will do great things!
