The S. Radhakrishnan Memorial Scholarship

The S. Radhakrishnan Memorial Scholarship recognizes qualified students whose lives have been affected by cancer for their academic achievements and community involvement. Award winners will receive a $1,000 scholarship paid directly to the school under an arrangement whereby the school will apply the scholarship funds only for enrolled students who are in good standing.

Mr. S. Radhakrishnan was dedicated to his family, his community, and his career. He was full of life, energy, and ambition. Among his passions was his commitment to developing the next generation. He realized that education, well defined goals, and hard work were critical to success and he tried to instill those values to his family and to his community. He took great pride in raising his two sons and in being directly involved with the youth of his community through his numerous leadership roles. He knew that they would someday be the future and that they must be mentored and guided accordingly. This scholarship is in honor of Mr. Radhakrishnan’s determination to help build tomorrow’s future.
