The Andy Schrier Memorial Scholarship Fund, created in memory of Andy Schrier, provides high school youth from our community with scholarship support to further their education after high school.
About Andy Schrier:
Andrew Wilber Schrier loved the Lord with his heart and soul, mind and strength, and he lived out that love in his life. Andy began the Hattie Beverly Tutoring Center, focused on academic support for junior and senior high students, in the fall of 2000.
Andy inspired many youth to learn, and to challenge themselves to reach their full potential. He urged church members and neighbors to learn about cultural, racial, and economic differences. Andy’s contagious spirit encouraged greater sensitivity as well as a call to end racism.
Andy was diagnosed with cancer in April of 2002 and passed away one year later. We dedicate this scholarship program to him and his vision, desiring to honor God in the process.
