This fund is named in memory of Robert Mace, a Boyertown Area High School graduate who was killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, and his brother, Kenneth, who died from leukemia in 2012. This scholarship is intended to recognize the value of the educational opportunity they received on graduating from Boyertown Area High School by providing the same for a deserving high school senior.
The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships to students of Boyertown Area School District who will be furthering their education after high school. Further education may include a four-year or two-year college or university. The selected individuals will be students who exhibit a strong commitment to academics and unwavering dedication to their extracurricular school or community activities. They persevere through obstacles that get in the way of furthering and bettering themselves because of their strong desire for personal growth. These individuals are self-motivated, inspiring others to achieve as well. The recipients should be in the top 15 percentile of their high school graduating class. This scholarship is also based on financial need. Preference will be given to students intending to major in journalism or pre-law.
Applications will be available for interested students to pick up at the Boyertown High School Counseling Office in February and March. Application deadline: April 1st.
