Eligibility: This scholarship will benefit graduating students of the Stewart County (Tennessee) High School. Consistent with Brad’s legacy, the Donor’s preference is that recipients be involved in football or in the H.O.S.A. program. Applicants must have a G.P.A. of 2.5 or higher and have a strong need for financial assistance to continue their education.
Brad Butkiewicz was a young man who loved football and H.O.S.A. (Health Occupation Students of America). Tragically, Brad lost his life in June 2004 on his way home from an early morning football workout program. According to his father, Jim, “He was a simple kid who listened to Mom and Dad. He always tried to do the right thing.” Thanks to Brad’s family, friends and community, they established the Brad Butkiewicz Foundation shortly after his passing in honor of Brad to help young people coming up who have a need. To continue Brad’s legacy, they transferred the private foundation to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee in 2012.
