Dee-Dee Scholarship (Deadline: May 15, 2019)

Submitted by

Who Can Apply: Dee Dee, as she was known by her many friends, and “mom” to her loved ones, had one final wish the week before her stroke: to provide a college fund for needy Hispanic students. Her main love was Peoria High School but students in the other district schools have her heart as well. Mom is a legend in the Peoria District. Her sons are still in contact with these now adults, many of whom remember her as their beloved kindergarten teacher. Many also remember her visiting the poorest of areas, helping those in need the most. She had an unparalleled fluency in Spanish and spent summers teaching the language in colleges. Her kindness and love of children was a gift from the angels. She had a presence radiating love and making those in her presence feel special. The one word heard again and again to describe Dee Dee is “kindness.” Those receiving scholarship assistance will honor Dee Dee by keeping kindness inside their hearts with whatever path their lives take them.

  • Graduating senior from Peoria High School.

  • Student attending any type of post-secondary institution.
