The Kendrick Foundation board of directors hosted the ceremony,two previous Kendrick Foundation Scholars, Jessica Bradford and Dr. Amanda Walter,  spoke on the academic and professional achievements that were made possible through the support of the Kendrick Foundation Scholarship. Bradford was inspired by the generosity of the Kendrick Foundation, commenting, “Kendrick’s passion to give back to the community is evident by the number in attendance tonight. When I was a scholar, the number of scholars was a third of what they are today.”

The award presentation was led by Kendrick Foundation board members, and Shelley D. Voelz, Kendrick Foundation board president and chairperson, reminded the scholars that, “each and every one of you has very unique talents and abilities. We have great faith in you, and the way we can show we believe in you is by the financial gift we can give to you. But, it’s much deeper than that, we believe in you, and we know you’re going to do wonderful things.”

The 2016 scholarship cycle will begin this fall, and information and applications will be available on the Kendrick Foundation website in late November of 2015.
