THE LARRY BROWN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

The Larry Brown Memorial Scholarship is as unique as Mr. Brown was. Scholarships will not necessarily be awarded to the best, brightest, and most involved students. Though Mr. Brown loved education and felt it very important, he was also a lover of the underdog and sought out students who struggled because of hardships but were able to persevere through them and be successful through hard work and dedication. These students, history lovers, future teachers, and students seeking trade careers are encouraged to apply.
