Chris W. Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Community Foundation of Washington County MD, Inc. is proud to announce the creation of the Chris W. Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund. The first of its kind in Washington County, the award will be made annually beginning in 2013, to a student graduating from a Learning Support Program of WCPS. Chris, also known as the "Hulk," excelled in his job monitoring emotionally disabled children throughout their school day at Williamsport High School. Following a bike accident in May of 2010, Chris's family and friends received an outpouring of tearful stories and support from students whose lives Chris had touched and changed. When Chris passed away in September of 2010, the opportunity to remember his legacy through support of "his" kids was too meaningful to pass up.
The Chris W. Smith Memorial Scholarship will be available to one student each year that overcomes the challenges of emotional and behavioral disabilities, and plans to continue his or her education beyond high school. Contributions to the fund may be made payable to the Chris W. Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o The Community Foundation of Washington County MD, Inc., 33 W. Franklin Street, Suite 203, Hagerstown, MD 21740, or by clicking the DONATE button on our website: www.cfwcmd.org. Be sure to list Chris W. Smith Memorial Fund in the memo or comment section. Please contact the Foundation at 301-745-5210 with any questions about this fund.
