DANNY SCHERRY WAS A PROUD SON OF THE WEST PARK AND ROCKY RIVER COMMUNITIES WHO DIED WHILE SERVING HIS COUNTRY IN IRAQ. THE MISSION OF THE DANNY SCHERRY MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND IS TO PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS TO STUDENTS OF OUR LADY OF ANGELS GRADE SCHOOL AND ROCKY RIVER HIGH SCHOOL WHO SHARE DANNY’S ZEST FOR LIFE, CARING OF FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND COMMUNITY, LEADERSHIP ABILITIES, AND DEDICATION TO SERVICE.
A SCHOLARSHIP WILL ALSO BE AWARDED YEARLY TO A SENIOR FOOTBALL PLAYER AT ROCKY RIVER HIGH SCHOOL WHO EXHIBITS AN UNWAVERING PASSION FOR THE GAME OF FOOTBALL AND THE TEAM. THE RECIPIENT IS A TRUE LEADER IN SPIRIT, AND IN THEIR CONVICTIONS BOTH ON AND OFF THE FIELD.
In 2017 we added additional scholarships for Rocky River High School graduating seniors. Scholarships will be awarded annually to two seniors pursuing a career in a service profession.
