The Will Pridgen VOH Scholarship
Will Pridgen loved life and people, and the mantra “Live Life to the Willest” was penned by his friends and family to describe the example he set for us. Will, who lost his battle with brain cancer at the tender age of 34, was an amazing graphic artist and a wonderful soul. His personality was larger than life and his impact on others was tremendous.
In keeping with his passion for helping others, the “Will Pridgen Voices of Hope (VOH) Scholarship” was created. It is the HOPE of Will’s Family and the SBTF to carry on the scholarship in his honor. The award is meant to assist students, whose lives have been affected by either their own brain tumor diagnosis, or that of a close family member; to obtain a post-secondary education at an accredited College, University, or Technical school in the field of Fine Arts.
The Faulkenberry Family VOH Scholarship
The Faulkenberry Family Scholarship is in honor of Ann Faulkenberry lost in 2008 to a GBM. Ann was a teacher who valued education and the family knew this was the perfect way to honor her memory. The award is meant to assist students to obtain post-secondary education.
The Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation’s Voices of Hope (VOH) Scholarship is made possible by the support of donors and constituents. It is the hope of the foundation for the scholarship to provide an opportunity to those stricken by a brain tumor and brain cancer, whether as a patient, caregiver, or family member, to fulfill a dream of receiving a higher education.
This Award is meant to assist trade school or college (bound or current) students, whose lives have been affected by either their own brain tumor diagnosis, or that of a close family member; in order to obtain a post-secondary education. The funds are intended to be used for general educational expenses, such as tuition, dining plans, or/and books for the current academic year. Each Scholarship award will be no less than $1,500.
