Kingdom Prep - Chuck Walker Memorial Scholarship Fund
Dear KPA Community,
In an effort to honor Chuck Walker’s faithful service to his family, church, Lubbock business community, and Kingdom Preparatory Academy, the leadership of our school established a memorial scholarship back in January 2018 to provide tuition assistance for deserving Kingdom Prep students experiencing unexpected and life-changing events in their family. Initially, this financial need was presented only to corporate donors in the Lubbock area; however, we would now like to expand this tax-deductible giving opportunity to the entire KPA community. Over the last 18 months, a number of families in our school have suffered heartbreaking losses that have affected their ability to pay school tuition. Changing schools for children during a time of grief is the last thing that we would want to occur, and a funded scholarship program will help to ensure continued educational stability for families.
Regarding the scholarship fund's namesake, Chuck Walker was born in 1962 in Canyon, Texas. He graduated from Pampa High School and attended West Texas State University. Chuck worked as the Vice President of Marketing and Sales for FirstCare Health Plans for 32 years and was a member of the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee, as well as Kingdom Prep’s Advisory Board. He was a loving husband, father, and a devout follower of his Savior, Jesus Christ. Chuck was kind and respectful towards everyone he encountered and certainly enjoyed his life to the fullest. He has been greatly missed by all who knew him.
Just as Chuck was a blessing to all those around him, we pray that this scholarship fund will be a source of enduring blessing for generations to come for those who desire a classical, Christian, University-Model education.
Thank you for your consideration, and please feel free to call or email with any questions.
