James Parker Traynor
Legacy Septic & Excavation is proud to offer four scholarships to graduating seniors at Winters Mill High School, Westminster High School, Manchester Valley High School, and Carroll County Career & Technology Center who have shown an interest in the environment.
Our Winters Mill scholarship is in memory of Jake Offutt who passed away from brain cancer following his freshman year of high school. The WMHS Class of 2018 is Jake’s graduating class, and we remember him through this scholarship as well as through the organization that his loved ones have created in his honor, www.jakeoffuttfoundation.com.
Our Westminster High School scholarship is in memory of Megan Estey, who passed away from brain cancer in February 2010. Megan is also remembered through “Hope for Megan” www.carrollcommunityfoundation.org.
James “Parker” Traynor passed away from an accident in 2020. Parker loved the outdoors, his friends and family. Parker would have graduated from MVHS with the Class of 2023.
Most recently, we have added for 2024 a scholarship for a graduating Carroll County Career & Technology Center senior in the memory of Kelsey Madison Barry. Kelsey completed the Cosmetology program and would have graduated from Winters Mill High School with the Class of 2019. Kelsey was the ultimate free spirit who was as comfortable in the classroom as on the soccer field. She loved camping with her family and truly never knew a stranger. Kelsey had the ability to make everyone feel special.
Scholarship details and application procedures are available through the Community Foundation of Carroll County website www.carrollcommunityfoundation.org. The submission period for applications typically runs between January 1st through March 31st, but can vary year to year. Applicants are required to submit an application including a 200 word essay. Thanks, and Good Luck!
