St. George’s Episcopal Church, Carmichael is pleased to share news of this year’s Gregory Kenneth Sherrill Memorial Fund Scholarship recipients. First place winner Conner Reed Quinn receiver $4,000 and runner-up Julieta Sandoval won $2,000 in the recent scholarship competition, which required graduating senior applicants to submit an essay, high school transcript and application. In addition, the top 10 candidates as chosen through the screening process were then interviewed to select the final two winners.
Conner graduated from Bella Vista High School and will be attending the University of Texas in Austin, majoring in Business Administration. Julieta will attend UCLA with a major in Business Management.
The Gregory Kenneth Sherrill Memorial Fund Scholarship was set up by the family of Gregory Sherrill, who was born on May 31, 1956 and died November 14, 1975 of a malignant tumor of the brain. He graduated from La Sierra High School in 1974, where he was a good student, an athlete and part of a school song and dance group. He was active at St. George’s Episcopal Church, where he served as an acolyte. Currently the amount of the scholarship is $4,000 to be awarded to an individual who fully intends to matriculate at a college in the calendar year in which the scholarship is awarded. A $2,000 scholarship is awarded to the runner-up.
Applicants must be between the ages of 17 and 21 and either a High School Graduate from San Juan School District or a graduating senior from that District.
