2018: Srikanth Yerra Memorial Scholarship Fund

Deadline: March 16 2018 at 11:59 PM CDT (Midnight)


Description

Srikanth Yerra (1987-2008) graduated from Moline High School in 2005 and attended college at the University of Illinois. He was planning on a career in medicine and business.

Sri had a charitable heart and wanted to serve in small cities and villages without pay after his schooling was completed. While in Champaign as a student, he served as a volunteer in the local hospital and worked as a research assistant in the laboratory.

At Moline High School, Sri was involved in tennis and basketball. He also volunteered at the hospital in his hours after school. An avid student, Sri most enjoyed his classes in math, science, and geography.

His philanthropic spirit also led him to donate blood and work in the Moline Public Library during the summer.

His friends and family remember his sense of humor and kind-hearted attitude, especially toward those who were less fortunate than him.

In establishing this scholarship in his memory, his family hopes to encourage and inspire another Moline High School student to dream big and achieve goals which may seem impossible.
