Stephen Decatur High School senior class students are encouraged to apply for the first award from the Hunter Hudson Memorial Scholarship Fund, administered by the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore (CFES).
The new scholarship was created in 2016 as a result of the generous outpouring of memorial contributions when the fund was established early last year. The grant award for the Hunter Hudson Memorial Scholarship will be up to $5,000.
To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must be a graduate of Stephen Decatur High School, been accepted into a two or four-year accredited college or university, demonstrate good character and participated in extra-curricular school and community activities. Successful applicants should also demonstrate they have the maturity and commitment to succeed in college.
Hudson’s family established the memorial scholarship fund in hopes this legacy will keep Hunter’s memory alive in the minds of those that knew and loved him, while assisting future generations. Hunter graduated from Stephen Decatur in 2015 and attended Worcester Technical School to study masonry.
