Cannon Memorial Scholarship Committee
All Saints believes strongly in supporting its young people who are pursuing post-secondary education. In addition to the Student Service Award administered by the Women's Guild, a scholarship fund was established in 1993 at the bequest of F.A. "Bill" Cannon.
An amount of $25,000 was given to All Saints to establish this scholarship. In the early years, the award was made to a graduating local high-school senior. In the past decade, we have provided continuing support to our parish members already in college. Following Hurricane Sandy, the committee was unable to launch fundraisers to supplement the fund's income, and the scholarship program was put "on hold."
Fortunately, the program has resumed thanks to the dedication of the Scholarship Committee, which has monitored the fund's investment and revived the fundraisers. Each year, the committee reviews applications from students and determines the scholarship value and recipients. Please consider joining this group and contributing to our young scholars' intellectual as well as spiritual growth!
