Dear Scott Fund Supporter:
Generous gifts from friends and supporters like you have enabled the John H. Scott Memorial Fund to award scholarships to deserving students in the northeast section of Louisiana for the past 33 years. With your support, we continue to be able to provide financial support for eight students at various stages of their college education.
As state funding for higher education decreases, more private funds are needed to fill the void. Your contributions allow us to play a small, but significant role in filling the void.
We are continually amazed at the quality of our applicants, but at the same time we are saddened that we cannot support them all. With your support, we have increased the number and amount of scholarship support given by the Fund. We hope that you will be able to increase your giving as we seek to increase the number and size of our awards.
Attached is our yearly newsletter so you can read about how your contributions are spent. You can also learn more about the recipients of both our scholarships and our special awards.
We hope you will include the Memorial Fund in your 2014 year-end giving.
