For the last two years I have attended a scholarship cook out hosted by Doreen and David Moore, but unfortunately I was out of town this year. The cook out is so inspiring that I still wanted to share some information about this year’s scholarship recipients. Keep in mind that funds for the scholarship are raised by the Moores and those who attend this cookout. Each person is asked to make a $15 donation. Not only do the people who attend get a great meal, but they get a nice favor as well.
In the years before I attended the event they awarded one student. Each year they went to a different high school for their awardee. Last year they gave out two awards and were able to do that again this year on July 30. This year’s first recipient was Taylor Marie Eackles, an honor student hoping to pursue a career in sports medicine and physical therapy. She will attend Penn State University. The second recipient was Shawn Taylor. He also is an honor student pursuing a career in engineering and will be attending California University of Pennsylvania. Both students are graduates of Westinghouse High School.
