The David K. Rogers Memorial Scholarship Fund at Marion Community Foundation migrated from an existing scholarship fund at the former Marion Catholic High School which was created shortly after the unexpected death of David K. Rogers. David was a student at Marion Catholic and played football for the school.
Created by David’s parents, Judge Richard and Sophie Rogers, the fund gives special consideration for an annual scholarship award to students who are active members of St. Mary Church. According to Richard, exemplary character is a major consideration in the selection of recipients for this scholarship.
“We look for demonstrated consideration shown classmates,” he said, “someone genuinely friendly, courteous, caring, and simply fun to be around.”
