John C. Clevenger Memorial Scholarship Fund

John C. Clevenger was a dedicated steward of his time, talent and treasure. He and his family believed in sharing their gifts with others. His capacity to develop relationships and love and support those around him is his lasting legacy. John died in 2017, leaving his family and friends to continue his example as good and faithful stewards.

John believed firmly in the value of education inside and outside of the classroom. Many of his life experiences and friendships were a direct result of his own pursuit of higher education. The John C. Clevenger Memorial Scholarship is supported by his long-time friends whom he met while pursuing his MBA from the Kellogg School of Management. Other family and friends have pledged support.
