Matt Monroe Memorial Scholarship

(Church of Christ)

This scholarship was established by Matt’s parents, (Sammy and Vicki), and his sisters, (Sammye Jo and Dana) in his memory. Matt lost his life at the age of 18 on September 28, 2005 as a result of an auto accident on his way back to WKU.  Matt attended the Mt. Vernon Church of Christ in Park City. Matt made so many friends from different congregations through school, football, FFA, church camp and youth devotions.  Matt loved life and everyone in it.   He could truly make everyone’s day better by giving you one of his smiles or hugs. He had a unique way of making the young and the old feel special. He truly believed in helping and putting others first and always did. His love for helping others will be continued through this scholarship fund. 

Because of Matt’s friendship with so many, this scholarship is open to any student who attends a Church of Christ in Barren and its surrounding counties.  The applicant must be a member of the current graduating class.

This scholarship in the amount of $250 and is non-renewable and non-transferable.  Funding for this scholarship comes from donations made in Matt’s memory or in memory of other loved ones.
