Last year for Justin Elson Scholarship
CRYSTAL FALLS — This will be the last year the Justin Elson Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to seniors continuing their education in the trades, according to scholarship organizers Maureen and Richard Elson.
“The remaining balance in the fund will be awarded this spring with preferential consideration being given to graduating seniors from Forest Park,” the Elsons said in a press release.
After meeting with Forest Park Superintendent, Becky Waters and industrial technologies instructor Emma Schroeder, the Elsons said they felt they could impact the lives of more students by lending a financial helping hand for the purchase of classroom equipment, materials and defraying student material fees.
Richard Elson expressed the desire to focus on the local community by supporting industrial technologies at Forest Park.
A fundraising event to support Forest Park industrial technologies education is scheduled for Saturday, March 7, at the Alpha Brewing Company.
