Our scholarship is named in memory of our fellow Freemason and Widows Sons Brother Timothy A. Holiga who was killed in the summer of 2017. While out riding on a Saturday afternoon near Waynesville he was struck by another vehicle that ran a stop sign. This was our chapter’s first loss due to a motorcycle accident and it affected our members dearly. In our efforts to cope with Tim's loss and turn a negative into a positive we decided to recognize Tim for all time. He was a dedicated Freemason; always volunteering and supporting his community. Brother Tim had a great smile and sense of humor that never knew a stranger, he was always willing to jump in and help and pay it forward. This scholarship is an opportunity to remind ourselves of Tim’s selfless devotion, while bringing smiles into the local community. While we are a small group we hope to use this scholarship program to make a large impact with some financial contributions to local youth who are continuing their educational path to success.
Due to School Closures and the uncertain education environment during the Covid-19 pandemic the 2020 scholarship was not awarded - we hope to issue the 2020 and the 2021 awards in the spring of 2021 to the next class of graduates.
Information about the 2021 year's fundraiser in support of this worthy cause will be coming soon!
