The Franklin Pierce Scholarship Committee will submit the names of all qualified applicants to the Zagar family for determination of each award. The family will select a winner for each award. They will also select an alternate for each award and the scholarship shall be awarded to that individual if the primary award winner does not meet the requirements.
Bryan Zagar, educator in the Franklin Pierce School District since 1998, and his wife, Heather Zagar, a long-time registered nurse in the greater Tacoma area, wish to award these scholarships to two deserving seniors. Both Bryan and Heather are passionate about service occupations and place great value on attending a four-year liberal arts university. They also believe in generous living and that “to whom much is given, much is required”.
In establishing this scholarship Bryan wishes to remember his two grandmothers Adeline Zagar and Marjorie Moore. Adeline was a woman of deep faith who helped to instill in Bryan a strong work ethic, the importance in living frugally, and the value in serving the neediest of society. Marjorie was a constant champion and supporter of higher education and taught Bryan from a young age the value of engaging in the challenging issues of life.
