The David Slocum Memorial Scholarship - $6,500 Full Tuition Scholarship - AWARDED


As a child, David loved participating in all types of sports, and when it was time for him to begin kindergarten, David decided he would rather go to spring training with the Phillies. However, his family insisted he get an education before entering the world of sports. By the time David completed college, his focus had shifted from baseball and he became a professional golfer. David had a kind personality, a vivid imagination, was affectionate, and extremely emotionally intelligent. Most importantly, Dave was the best big brother there could have been for CREATE’s founder, Nicole Slocum Duslak. This scholarship is awarded to a child who exemplifies these characteristics.




The John R. Grill and Family Scholarship - $6,500 Full Tuition Scholarship


Jack was an advocate of education, not only for his son and daughter, but for his granddaughters also. He was an Eagle Scout, Veteran of World War Two, active in his church growing up, a dedicated sportsman, and a man who lived by a creed sometimes not noticed in today’s society. This scholarship is awarded to a family with someone who exemplifies these characteristics.




The Stuart E. Levine Memorial Scholarship - $6,500 Full Tuition Scholarship - AWARDED


Words and music: these were the two passions that enriched Stu’s life and brought out his greatest talents. He started reading when he was just two years old, and he went on to read and collect hundreds of books. He loved to write jokes, funny stories, songs and even sitcom screenplays. When he wasn’t reading or writing, he was singing or playing the guitar. Stu had a natural musical ability and never took a music lesson, he just practiced and practiced until it sounded good. The Levine family will be delighted to award this scholarship to a child with exemplary writing and musical abilities.
