The Alexander Handy Memorial and Scholarship Foundation was established to assist the community through youth safety and scholastics.
About the foundation
Through enhanced awareness, we can and will encourage youths through foundation projects and sponsorships to be aware of what can happen as pedestrians, as riders of bikes or drivers of a cars, if you are careless or not prepared for a situation. We remind our community to be cautious around cars and bikes.
The organization has a board of directors that meets regularly to make organization decisions.
Our tax ID # is: 20-5228394
The foundation provides an annual $2,500 scholarship to a Medway High School senior. The qualifying criteria for this scholarship will not be solely based on grade point average. This will not necessarily be the best student in the school. The scholarship will be given to an individual that had to fight or might have struggled to achieve decent grades. Emphasis on the arts will also be a qualifier.
We will also provide a minimum $250 gift to a student at the Medway Junior High School each year. This gift will also be based on criteria listed above (in the annual scholarship.)
In honor of Alex’s challenges and gifts in school, when we award scholarships to students each year, we judge their submissions more on a creative basis than a scholastic one.
