Established in 2014

Clay Neiderheiser Scholarship Fund

Eligibility: The scholarship is open to graduating seniors of Fairview High School who have participated in the Fairview High School Band program.

Carla Lankford established a Donor-Advised fund in 2001 in honor of her late son, Clay Neiderheiser, who died in a motorcycle accident at age 21. In 2015, Carla accepted The Foundation’s suggestion that this Fund transition to a scholarship: the Clay Neiderheiser Scholarship Fund for Fairview High School. Clay had a love of all things musical and participated in both the concert and marching bands at Fairview High School until his graduation in 1998.
