Martin Family Business Scholarship


This scholarship was established in 2019 by the Martin family; Shirley, Jim, Abbey, and Ben. As Shawnee Heights residents, students, and school patrons (Shirley-USD 450 Business Manager, Abbey and Ben K-12 students/graduates, and Jim active patron) the family experienced the daily impacts of the community nature and spirit of the District throughout their entire lives. The energy and assistance provided to a young growing family came through students of all ages, teachers, administrative staff, support staff, former students, parents, family friends within the District, and many more school and District related activities. This scholarship reflects the recognition of and gratitude for this life-long community influence on the family.
