The Henry and Marty Dyker Community Service Scholarship will be awarded to a student continuing on to a four year university, community college, technical school, or vocational school who has significantly contributed to the community through their volunteer and leadership activities. The Dykers lived a life filled with community service. What have you done outside of high school to better your community or provide aide to those in need? Who are these students? They may volunteer for community service, collect for the food bank, work with Scouting, equine therapy and/or head up drives to benefit the less advantages in the community– the possibilities are endless. Let us know what you are doing to make your community a better place and how you are trying to take a leadership role in any activity.
