ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (WJHL) – A scholarship for Elizabethton High School students has been set up in memory of former Elizabethton East Side Elementary School principal Dr. Josh Wandell.
According to a post from EHS, the Josh Wandell Faith Over Fear Scholarship will grant one “worthy Elizabethton High School senior” a scholarship of $1,000 at graduation.
The post says Mrs. Tabitha Wandell has given $20,000 to the scholarship fund, meaning the next 20 years of the scholarship are secure.
Increments of $500 are being accepted for the scholarship fund. To learn more about contributing to the Josh Wandell Faith Over Fear Scholarship, contact Tabitha Wandell at email@example.com.
Wandell was diagnosed with ALS in 2013 and passed away in February 2020.
Ever since his diagnosis, a 3-kilometer run/walk fundraiser was held in his honor.
