Through the Sergeant Andrew Wallace Memorial Scholarship Fund, Andrew's spirit will live on in the hearts and souls of many, including donors to the fund, and its recipients.
We currently give out a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior at Ripon High School and at Oshkosh North High School. These students must be pursuing the dream of becoming a teacher and influencing young people, just as Andrew lived his life. Special consideration is given to those students pursuing a major in physical education and adaptive physical education. Students need to earn a 2.5 GPA or better to be eligible, and must be involved in community service and extra curricular activities.
We hope to add a grant allowing teachers / administrators to provide unique opportunities that would benefit the youth in any way.
