Carpenter Owen Scholarship

Carpenter Owen Scholarship

Howard Carpenter was a St. John Auxiliary volunteer for 22 years and had over 7,000 hours of service.  He believed in helping youth and paying it forward, so he donated money so the St. John Auxiliary could set up a scholarship.

Each year the St. John Auxiliary awards a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior who has been accepted to an accredited college or trade school to help defer the expenses of their education.  Junior Volunteers do have to meet service hour requirements, but are not required to major in medical professions.  The junior volunteer coordinator sends out applications in January to all who qualify and the applications are due at the end of March.  The St. John Auxiliary invites the winner and a guest to our Auxiliary Luncheon in May to receive their award.
