Regular readers of this blog -- the three of you -- might remember that I wrote about Marjorie Chase's passing back in August. You can find it here. I was hoping that someone would do a permanent tribute to Ma Chase in Clarence, and now apparently that is happening.
A group of her friends are attempting to establish a scholarship in her name at Clarence Central High School, with plans to grant the first scholarship award in 2010. The scholarship must be established by March 1 to provide time for the faculty to select a student.
The title of the scholarship will be "The Marjorie Chase Scholarship to be awarded to a student with highest integrity entering the field of education."
It's a fine idea. If you are interested in donating, checks should be made payable to "Marjorie Chase Scholarship Fund." Mail it to Richard Mancuso, Business Administrator, Clarence Central Schools, 9625 Main St., Clarence, NY 14031.
