Frank Lerew Memorial Scholarship

The Shippensburg Community Fair Frank Lerew Memorial Scholarhip was first formed and awarded in 2008. The fair scholarship was named after Frank Lerew, founder of the fair, in honor of his 50 years of service as president of the organization. Upon Mr. Lerew's retirement in 2007, the Board of Directors elected to begin a scholarship program to award and recognize upcoming youth in the community. Following Frank's death in 2016, the scholarship serves as a way to honor his tireless contributions to our great town.

The Frank Lerew Memorial Scholarship is currently valued at $1,000 and is awarded to one well qualified student each year.
