Karen J. Weckler Memorial Scholarship$1,500.00 Scholarship in memory of Karen J. Weckler and her work at the United Methodist Church of Geneva and the Tri-Cities area.
Karen was a serious student of the Bible and loved doing church service work including rummage sales, pot lucks, craft fairs and more. She was a very accomplished crafter. In fact, many UMCG-ers still display the beautiful holiday hand-made crafts Karen and her sister created. She loved playing bridge with her friends, watching high school sports, gardening, and doing anything with her family. She was a wonderful wife and mother.
Candidates must meet the following criteria to be considered for this scholarship:
The $1500.00 Scholarship is to be paid directly to any state college or university in the State of Illinois upon verification of completion of the Scholarship Criteria listed above. $750.00 will be disbursed for the fall semester and the other $750.00 will be disbursed in the spring. (In the event any of the listed church programs are discontinued, the donor may revise the list or provide a substitute program.)
We hope the establishment of this Memorial Scholarship Fund will in some way encourage students to embrace many of the Christian Values and interest in Community Service that was such a large part of Karen’s life.
