This fund was initiated by the Shady Spring Citizens Scholarship Committee under the leadership of Larry Ford & Sarah Chapman. Donors pooled their resources to provide this permanent source of scholarship money for SSHS graduates. A number of contributions were made in memory of Debra McGrady Redden, and a scholarship will be awarded in her memory. Other gifts have been received from alumni recognizing their own graduating classes. Any individuals or classes contributing $10,000 or more to this fund will have a named scholarship.
