The Marysville Kiwanis Club established this scholarship with a donation from Sargent V. Chamberlain, for his interest in education and youth, and dedication to Kiwanis of which he was a past president and served on numerous committees for the benefit of the organization. Mr. Chamberlain's donation was in honor of his children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces who have graduated from Fairbanks High School.
