The Griffin School Foundation, in cooperation with The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound, is proud to sponsor two scholarship programs: the Cody Brown Memorial Scholarship and the Tiernan-Keigher Scholarship.
Cody Brown Memorial Scholarship
Cody Brown was a Griffin Elementary school fifth grader when a tragic accident took his life. Cody was a energetic, friendly, dependable student, athlete, musician, and a person of great promise. This scholarship is available to former students of Griffin Elementary school and rewards those students who strive for excellence in several areas, including academics, athletics, arts, extracurricular and community activities
The Griffin School Foundation awarded the 2015 Cody Brown Memorial Scholarship to two students this year. Both are former Griffin School students and Capital High School graduates. The 2015 recipients are Jessica Eidenmuller and Neve Peters. Jessica is a self-motivated, empathetic, and hard-working student. She has participated in numerous service projects with her church, her school, and throughout our community. Jessica’s interests and activities include competitive swimming, working as a lifeguard and swim instructor, and involvement in her church. Neve is an independent student with a strong love for the arts. She has been described as a “tireless worker” who gave herself wholeheartedly to the Capital High School music program. Neve was also involved in track and field and theater. Jessica and Neve have each received a $2,000 scholarship to apply towards their college education.
The Tiernan-Keigher Scholarship was made possible by a generous anonymous donation that was then matched with proceeds from our 2006 Auction. The $2500 award is given to an eighth grade student in the Griffin School District and is held in trust until the recipient is enrolled in a higher education program.
The scholarship honors two women, Annie Tiernan and Margaret Keigher, who were a positive influence to many children during their lives. These women offered support and instilled a value of education and confidence in self to those children. The scholarship committee strives to select students who show promise to continue on with their education and are compassionate citizens.
The 2015 Tiernan-Keigher Scholarship was awarded to Griffin 8th grader Sydney Moffett. Sydney was known at Griffin School for being a hard-worker, an excellent student, and a role model. In addition, she is kind-hearted and always willing to help others. Her interests and activities have included volleyball and other sports, editor of the year book, Math Olympiad, and many volunteer activities at Griffin School and in the community. Sydney is now attending Capital High School. Scholarship funds in the amount of $2,500 will be held in trust until she is enrolled in a higher education program.
