Justice High School Scholarship Fund Scholarships
Each year, the Justice HS Scholarship Fund (JHSSF) awards scholarships to Justice High School seniors unable to afford post-secondary education without financial assistance. The number and value of the scholarships vary depending on the generosity of our wonderful donors.
In addition to the general Foundation scholarships, some of our donors give money each year in honor of specific individuals. The Harriet "Ozzi" Mask, Norene Thomas, Svendsen Memorial, and Jeremy Munga Scholarships are four such scholarships.
Harriet "Ozzi" Mask Scholarship
In addition to the general JHSSF scholarships, some of our donors give money each year in honor of specific individuals. These named scholarships include the Harriet "Ozzi" Mask, Norene Thomas, Svendsen Memorial, and Jeremy Munga Scholarships. (The name “Stuart” is included for individuals associated with the high school before the
Norene Thomas Scholarship
Since 2009, the Foundation has awarded a scholarship in honor of the late Norene Thomas, who was a committed Stuart parent, PTSA member and Band Booster volunteer.
Svendsen Memorial Scholarship
The JHSSF awards scholarships in honor of the late Nancy and Eric Svendsen, who were married for 38 years and devoted their lives to helping people in the international community. From 1968 to 1970, the two served together in the Peace Corps. Nancy Svendsen was a member of Stuart’s ESOL faculty for sixteen years. She was also a longtime sponsor of the Raiders Readers Program.
Jeremy Munga Scholarship
In 2017, a scholarship was created to honor the memory of Jeremy Munga. Jeremy was a beloved member of the Stuart student body whose energy and passion touched many at the school, whether through sports, music, cheer squad, or just his general good-naturedness and ever-present smile. A drowning accident in the summer of 2016 took his life weeks before his senior year at Stuart was to have begun.
Decorate a Vet Scholarship
Founded by a Stuart alumnus, Decorate A Vet honors and assists Northern Virginia veterans, whose service allows us all to lead freer lives. They fund a scholarship to ease the financial burden of college for 1-2 students, with strong preference for those who are military dependents, have siblings who serve, or have committed to service in ROTC.
The Class of 1967 Scholarship
The Class of 1977 Scholarship
The Classes of 1967 and 1977 funded scholarships in celebration of their 50th and 40th reunions. They sought to give back to the high school by supporting the higher education dreams of current seniors.
In addition to awarding scholarships with contributions made to the JHSSF, we partner with several other local entities to make additional funds available to support Justice High School graduates who aspire to attend college. Our partner scholarship organizations include the Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club, the Casey Schulman Foundation, and the Lake Barcroft Community’s Thurgood Marshall Fund.
The Rotary Club of Bailey’s Crossroads awards scholarships in collaboration with the JHSSF in recognition of the recipients' community service and involvement with Interact Club, the Rotary International’s service club for young people.
Thurgood Marshall Fund
The Thurgood Marshall Fund awards scholarships to graduating Justice HS seniors who excel both in and outside the classroom. The Fund was established in honor of one of Lake Barcroft’s most distinguished residents, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. The Thurgood Marshall Scholarships are awarded every year by the Lake Barcroft community.
Casey Schulman Foundation
The Casey Schulman Foundation awards scholarships to support high-achieving students who have a curiosity about the world and have demonstrated their desire and ability to improve the lives of others. The scholarship honors Casey Schulman, a former Stuart student.
Over the years, people have donated funds for a one-time scholarship to honor an individual or a class of Stuart graduates.
Past scholarships include:
Ellen Davidson Scholarship
Ellen Davidson was a special education student at Stuart High School several years ago. After her graduation from the Pulley Career Center, she went on to a long-term successful career in the Federal Government at Fort Belvoir. She passed away in 2014 and named the Stuart Educational Foundation as a beneficiary of her retirement savings plan.
Class of ’79 Spirit in the Community Award
