The Oakville Youth Memorial Scholarship Foundation is an independent, tax-exempt organization located in Shedd, Oregon.

History

Norman and Pat Coon and their family started the Oakville Youth Memorial Scholarship Fund in June, 1986, as a memorial to their daughter, Charlene Coon GIlmour.

Awarded annually for scholastic achievement, potential, or financial need, the scholarship is given to selected students who reside within the Oakville Parks and Recreation District or are active in the Oakville Presbyterian Church.

From the scholarship’s inaugural recipient, Mike Cunningham, in 1987, who went on to become a high school teacher in the area, the fund has benefited many students as they seek to continue their higher education.
