CLEARFIELD – The first-ever fundraising event for the Melanie Lynn Vaughn Memorial Scholarship will take place on Wednesday, May 11, from 5-8 p.m., at the Dutch Pantry in Clearfield.
The purpose of the fundraiser is to raise additional funds for the Melanie Lynn Vaughn Memorial Scholarship, which is awarded each spring to a high school student in the Curwensville area.
This senior is planning to pursue further education in the field of special education or in a field that helps children with special needs.
Melanie Vaughn’s friends and family will put on their aprons and take part in a celebrity waiter/waitress night at the Dutch Pantry. All tips and 10% of food sales will go to Melanie’s charity.
The Melanie Lynn Vaughn Memorial Scholarship was established in 2019, a scholarship in memory of a young woman who continued to defy the odds throughout her life, despite having spina bifida and multiple disabilities.
Melanie graduated in 1995 from Curwensville Area High School, where she attended the Special Education Program.
Melanie was a lifelong resident of the Clearfield-Curwensville area before passing away in November 2018. She touched many lives and participated in many fundraisers in the area.
