Jackson Ferree Scholarship

Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation
Published on March 30, 2020

The Ferree family created the Jackson Ferree scholarship to honor Jackson. We want to remember and acknowledge Jackson’s character by celebrating a student who is kind, quirky, and deserving, even though not a straight-A student, star athlete, or volunteer extraordinaire.

We wish to recognize an individual who exhibits generosity of spirit, independence, and a willingness to chart their own path through life, regardless of popular notions of success.

One $40,000 ($10,000/year) scholarship is available to students graduating from high schools within TTUSD with independence of spirit and demonstrable kindness.

“To be nobody but myself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting” – E.E. Cummings
