Final Numbers!

April 25, 2017


On behalf of the Reeves' family and the scholarship committee, we would like to thank all that supported the R. Bernard Reeves Scholarship Crowdfund campaign by either giving or spreading the word.

We are extremely excited that not only did we reach our goal, but we finished well above it at a total of $29,778.  This total also does not include any subsequent employer matches.  So the actual amount raised will be even higher once these employer portions are credited.

Although this campaign has ended, we can to continue to grow this scholarship year after year by going to and typing in 'R. Bernard Reeves Scholarship'.

Thanks again for all of your support!

Thanks again for your support,
