Larry James Memorial Scholarship Fund

Larry James Memorial Scholarship Fund

On February 16, 2018, a lovely soul left this world and went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Suddenly, and without warning, a blood clot to the heart took my amazing 41 year old brother from our family. But we firmly believe that Jesus makes no mistakes.

My brother, Larry James, was bigger than life and one of a kind. So many people loved him. His death left a very large hole in our lives and we want his legacy of kindness and love to continue.

When Larry was in high school; someone, unknown to our family, gave him the gift of a years school tuition paid in full. So it is our desire to pay this forward in his memory.

With this Scholarship Fund we will help students in need of financial aid attend his alma mater schools, Athens Christian School or Emmanuel College. In coordination with each school’s financial officer, we will determine where a scholarship could make the biggest impact. We will also be accepting applications directly from families with a special need. Our goal is to honor Larry’s memory by influencing generations with the gift of education.
