PTA accepting applications for Nancy Schaps Memorial Grant

The Mercer Island School District PTA is accepting applications for the Nancy Schaps Memorial Grant through May 29.

Schaps, who passed away from cancer in 1996, supported local children through the school district PTA and other volunteer services. Her family members established the grant in her memory in 1996 and funded an endowment for the grant in 2010.

The grant award in the amount of up to $500 is presented to a local student in elementary through high school who has suffered the death of a parent, who has a parent with a terminal illness or who has a parent serving on active duty with the military.
