MacRae Memorial Fund Scholarship

PURPOSE:

As a part of the MacRae Legacy for Life, the Memorial Fund Scholarship was created to recognize the hard work and dedication necessary to complete a high school diploma. The scholarship is to aid in supporting individuals lith learning disabilities in their pursuit of a post-secondary education.
