Sarah Leary Scholarship Fund
Organized by: sarah leary scholarship fund, llc
The Sarah Leary Scholarship Fund will send financially challenged Otter Valley Union High School students to France, to a Spanish speaking country, to New York City or Hawaii on a science field trip during the 2015-2016 school year. OVUHS is a public high school serving nine communities and 531 students. It is a rural area in which a large percentage of adults have no education beyond high school and 48+/- percent free & reduced lunch. With out your donation many kids would not have the opportunity to travel on the OVUHS school sponsored trips.
Sarah died at age 16 in a car accident 6 years ago on this upcoming Mothers Day. Sarah loved adventure. In her short years she had traveled to Spain, Switzerland, France and Italy. She had driven with her father to Iowa and back. She jumped off the cliffs of the Dorset Quarry… jumped off a bridge into the White River…jumped into waitressing at the local tavern. She had explored Washington DC, New Orleans and the NASA Center in Florida where Sarah was inspired to become an Astronaut. She pounced on life and shared her joy with all who knew her. The purpose of the Sarah Leary Scholarship Fund is to give high school kids with financial challenges an opportunity to see the world so they, too, will live an inspired life.
