About the campaign
OUR 2023 GOAL: $30,000
Since launching The Doug Odell Scholarship Fund in 2020, we have awarded 5 graduating seniors from Blue Ridge School and Early College and Summit Charter School with money towards their continuing education at a college of their choice. This year, we’re hoping to significantly increase our impact.
What’s New: We are also opening the application process to students planning to attend a 2-year technical or trade school of their choice.
About the Scholarship:
The Scholarship is named after Doug Odell, one of the founding members of Friends of Lake Glenville who served the organization for many years in various capacities. He was instrumental in shaping FLG’s core mission: to preserve, protect, educate and advocate for the continued beauty, integrity, safety, and survival of Lake Glenville.
Each year, successful applicants will be awarded $5000 towards a 4-year college or university or $2500 for a 2-year program. Previous winners may also be eligible for additional funds pending qualification. Additionally, we are hoping to create a reserve for the continued success and perpetuity of the fund.
