Harold C. Wakeman Memorial Scholarship Fund - GIVE TODAY!Sunday, January 01, 2017 : 1:00 AM to Thursday, December 31, 2020 : 11:59 PM
The name Harold Wakeman conjures up wonderful and heartfelt memories for many people. He served others by demonstrating his unique talents and personality through his life's work as a respected funeral director in our community. His kindheartedness spread deeply throughout his work to uplift those who sought his help. He was a strong and loyal leader, a caring and sincere gentleman, a down-to-earth friend and a person who gave of himself for the benefit of others. Above all, he was a loving family man. His impact throughout his life was felt immeasurably by countless people. It was because of his exemplary life that his unexpected death on March 17, 2008, was shocking to all that loved him and whom he loved.
To help honor his memory, we have set aside a special opportunity for you to continue his tradition of helping others by giving a gift today!
The Harold C. Wakeman Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2008 with the Valley Lutheran High School Foundation in Saginaw, Michigan. Dad and mom felt strongly about the need of a Lutheran high school in the region. They worked passionately with other "first families" of the school to turn it from an idea into a brick and mortar facility. This dream was realized in September 1977 when Valley Lutheran opened its doors for the first time, beginning the tradition of filling the classrooms with dedicated teachers who thrive on teaching our children about Christ and challenging them for their next stage in life.
The impact these first families have made on the school is unmistakable. They have volunteered years of service as booster supporters, worked to establish today's annual fundraisers, served as school board leaders, provided legacy gifts to help the next generation of students, and are some of the most vocal cheerleaders for the school around our community. Their level of commitment has spread throughout today's parents, making Valley Lutheran High School renowned throughout the region for its quality education and student excellence.
Our family is taking this opportunity to reach out to you with the hope that you may join us in giving a gift to the memorial scholarship fund in remembrance of Harold. Money raised for the scholarship fund is earmarked to help students with their tuition costs.
On behalf of our mother, Judy, and the rest of our family, THANK YOU!
