Samuel Brooklyn Reed Memorial Scholarship Fund

This scholarship is being awarded in honor and loving memory of Samuel Brooklyn Reed, a 2006 graduate of Schuylkill Valley High School. Sam was an honor student with a concentration of study that included history, ancient cultures, and anthropology. He viewed education and learning as a means to enrich his life. He developed a deep appreciation for independent music and films, loved long distance running and mountain biking and enthusiastically embraced his college experience at the University of Pittsburgh where he was an undergraduate in his sophomore year with a major in anthropology. Sam lived life to the fullest, found humor where humor might have been ignored, was committed to his family and was passionate about the pursuit of ideas and dreams.

This scholarship was established in 2008 and is intended to honor his memory by supporting a deserving high school senior who is continuing his or her higher education. The fund will support an annual scholarship for a graduating senior male or female student at Schuylkill Valley High School, Leesport, Pennsylvania. The applicant must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and intend to pursue a four-year degree at a college or university, preferably at the University of Pittsburgh. Preference will be given to recipients with an interest in the field of anthropology, archeology, or history, or an interest in distance running -(competitively or recreationally). If more than one candidate meets the qualifications in any particular year, then the scholarship should be awarded to the student with the higher cumulative GPA.

To be considered for this scholarship, submit this application between January 15th and April 1st. Applicants will be notified in May.
