Ruby-Jean Murray Memorial Scholarship

The Tim and Vikki Murray Family, after the tragic death of their daughter in an automobile accident in Quilcene in 2013, approached the board of Quilcene-Brinnon Dollars for Scholars to seek help and guidance in establishing a memorial scholarship in her name.  The goal is to raise $10,000.  This money is to be placed in an endowment fund and to use the dividends and interest to offer an annual scholarship in their daughter's name.  Over the past year the fund has raised over $4600.

Through the help of family, friends, Quilcene School District, Quilcene Lions Club, and Quilcene-Brinnon Dollars for Scholars we are raising the last half of the money to complete the endowment.  This is centered on a Valentine Breakfast in the Quilcene Masonic Hall on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2015.  Along with the breakfast, there will be a silent auction and other festivities to help us reach our goal.  Her classmates will be there to serve the breakfast and we sincerely hope that if you are unable to attend, you might consider a gift to this most worthwhile cause.

We also have the possibility to have our donations matched, up to $5000, from a matching grant offered through the Dollars for Scholars, Scholarship America, our parent organization.

Checks may be made out to the Quilcene-Brinnon Dollars for Scholars (QBDFS).  We are a 501c3 organization and will send a receipt for tax purposes.  Our mailing address is PO Box 477, Quilcene, WA 98376.
