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.
2021 Awards are now completed, and we were pleased to conduct our Scholarship Dinner on Friday June 25th to make presentations and recognize our winners for 2021!
Congratulations - and Good Luck in the Future!
