This scholarship was established by the Butcher family in memory of Jeanne Butcher who passed away in March 2014. Jeanne throughout her extraordinary life was dedicated to her family, friends, and community. Jeanne treated everyone with dignity and respect. Jeanne was genuine and generous. Her caring for others was done without fanfare and with no expectations of anything in return. Jeanne would light up a room with her warm smile, easy going conversation and laughter.  Jeanne was a wife, mother of six children and a grandmother who loved each one in a very special way. Jeanne embodied the meaning of unconditional love. This annual scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior or prior award recipient that best meets the spirit and qualities Jeanne possessed.
