In November 1995, four siblings came together to establish The Wood Memorial Scholarship to honor and remember their parents as well as other family members who were teachers.
The siblings, Emmett S. Wood, Clara Wood Dischinger, Nelda M. Kramer, and Rolland E. Wood (and their respective spouses) created the scholarship to honor their parents, Robert Emmett & Stella Sherlock Wood, and other family members including: Robert Henry & Clara Seidel Wood, Sophia Elizabeth Sherlock, Jessie Ada Wood, Ina Wood Douglass, Mildred Stout Wood, and Donas H. Dirschinger.
This scholarship is awarded to a graduating Jefferson County high school senior who resides in the Ryker’s Ridge school/community district.
