After Willard’s untimely death at the age of 28, his mother Inez worked with the school and Chemical Bank to set aside funds to help St. Louis students with educational expenses. Now with more than $14,000 in the account, a scholarship fund at the Foundation is a natural solution to honor Willard’s memory and help youth from St. Louis further their education.
The $1000 Willard Brainard Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a St. Louis High School graduate or graduating senior demonstrating financial need and high moral character and citizenship. To apply, visit gratiotfoundation.org. Applications are due on or before March 8.
