A scholarship for a legacy and to remember……

Salado emblemJust like most small Texas communities, Friday Night Lights means you attend your hometown high school football games.  The Sam and Elizabeth Dowdy family was no different.  The boys loved going to the home football games.  Fischer was excited to become a “Salado Eagle”.  Elizabeth shared with me that one night Fischer wasn’t where he was supposed to be, and next thing she knew, he was running out on the field with the cheerleaders!  So to honor Elizabeth’s love of Salado, honor the memory of the boys, the school they would have attended, the academic and sports programs they would have participated in and the school they would have graduated from (Salado high school) we wanted to provide a legacy for Fischer, Benjamin and Hayes.

Therefore, I am excited to announce that John and I have created the “Fischer, Benjamin and Hayes Dowdy Memorial Scholarship”.  This scholarship will be awarded for the first time in April/May 2014.  The student that will be awarded this scholarship will be a high school senior at Salado High School, have a 3.0 minimum GPA and attend a college/university.

The scholarship is managed through the Salado Education Foundation.  They are designated as a 501C organization, so any donations to their scholarship are tax deductible.  I have started the scholarship with funds that I have received from people purchasing my wreaths!   If you are interested in one of my wreath creations please contact me.  I will make the wreath for the cost of supplies and a donation to their scholarship fund.

So, if you are looking for a way to honor Fischer, Benjamin and Hayes Dowdy, for their birthdays, holidays, anniversary remembrance, etc., I would ask you to consider making a donation to their memorial scholarship.  You can make a donation to:

Salado Education Foundation

PO Box 458

Salado, TX  76571

Please indicate “Dowdy memorial scholarship” on the memo line of your donation.

I hope to have some fund raising opportunities in the upcoming years to make this an endowed scholarship so that their legacy will always live on………

Always Remember…….
