San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2017
The Jon Henderson Memorial Scholarship is pleased to announce that six students hailing from Southern California region universities with active Kappa Sigma fraternity chapters and colonies have been awarded scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year.
“We are thrilled to be giving out six awards for the maximum amount of $2,500 per student totaling $15,000 in scholarships,” stated David Schofield, Executive Director of the Jon Henderson Memorial Scholarship and CEO of Restaurant Revolution Technologies, Inc. “The level of interest from applicants and award recipients continues to expand throughout Southern California and continues to augment the legacy of Jon’s love for the Kappa Sigma fraternity and it’s brotherhood.”
This year’s award winners are: Aaron Atchison, Juan Anaya, Justin Padilla, Mason Paine, Blake Pinyan, Sam Wilson of San Diego State University.
Each award winner was selected from a pool of Southern California region undergraduate and graduate student applicants based on their academic achievements, community service accomplishments, work experience and leadership involvement within their local chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. All submissions were weighted and scored by a panel of judges led by David Schofield for award recommendation regulated by the San Diego Foundation.
The Jon Henderson Memorial Scholarship was founded in 2010 by Kappa Sigma Brothers David Schofield and Dieter Baier, at the behest of the last will and testament of fellow brother Jon Henderson following his death resulting from a near nine year battle with cancer. Jon’s vision was to provide financial resources and support for students of the Kappa Sigma fraternity who clearly display the leadership and academic qualities that are part of the core essence of being in the fraternity and for their families who need some assistance.
Since its inception, the Jon Henderson Memorial Scholarship has partnered with the San Diego Foundation whose sole purpose is to promote and increase effective and responsible charitable giving and manages more than $636 million in assets. During the first six years of the partnership, 23 scholarships were awarded. With this year’s group of six recipients, the total number of students receiving awards since its inception is 29 totaling $72,500.
