In 2006, the Vallencourt Family established a permanent endowment to create the F.E. and Barbara Vallencourt Scholarship. Each spring, members of the Junior Class are invited to apply for consideration as a Vallencourt recipient. A committee of faculty members reviews the applications and one young man and one young woman is selected and announced at the underclassmen awards ceremony in May.
The Vallencourt scholarship was created in honor of F.E. and Barbara Vallencourt, North Florida pioneers, who, through hard work, grit and determination, built a successful business and raised a family steeped in faith, leadership and love.
If the values of hard work and respect are important to you, you may choose to donate to this fund. As the endowment grows, so will the number of recipients who will benefit from the Vallencourt families foresight and planning.
