Who Can Apply: The Sheepdog of the Year Scholarship was established in 2016 in memory of Ryan FitzGerald. Ryan was a graduate of Lambert High School in 2012. He died suddenly on September 24, 2015. Ryan was lovingly called a “sheepdog” because he had an attitude of service above self, he was intensely loyal and protected, supported and encouraged people around him.
To honor Ryan’s legacy, this Sheepdog Connection organization provides opportunities for young men to build their confidence, character, and faith and to have a positive, impactful, and rippling effect on those they meet and love.
Applicants must be graduating high school seniors from Lambert High School and must be planning to pursue a full-time degree program at an accredited US college/university. The scholarship is awarded for $1,000.
Deadline: March 15, 2020
