The annual Molly Jean Featheringill scholarship
Given by Friends of the Descanso Library

One of our goals is to to help some of our graduating seniors with their higher education.  Sometimes it only takes a little help to get someone started on the road to success.  We believe the scholarship is a very worthwhile cause and are pleased to continue this project yearly. We give at least one annual scholarship of $1,000. Since we started this program in 2009, we have given scholarships to 11 deserving high school seniors.

 2013 is the first year that the scholarship was named after one of our founding members of The Friends of the Descanso Library. She was instrumental in getting the new library built as well as the 3 additions. She was always on the board as as officer or chairperson and retired in 2013.
