Cracraft Family Endowed Scholarship

For student leaders on campus

The Cracraft Family Endowed Scholarship was created by Scott Cracraft '83 and Janet Cracraft '85. Their daughter, Kellee Ann, is also a graduate of the College, class of 2015. Kellee Ann was a recipient of an Alumni Scholarship and her experience inspired the creation of this scholarship. As Janet Cracraft was the first in her family to graduate from College, Scott and Janet have designated that their scholarship be awarded to a first generation student. They believe this is a rewarding way to give back to their alma mater and to instill philanthropy in the recipient.
