Founded by the Vaughn Family for Frederick County students studying chemistry, science education, or biochemistry at the post-secondary level.
In honor of a woman devoted to teaching the sciences and who positively influenced hundreds of students in Frederick County, the Vaughn Family established The V. Jeanne Vaughn Memorial Scholarship Fund. Mrs. Vaughn’s career spanned more than 30 years with Frederick County Public Schools. “Jeanne was always passionate about helping students succeed,” said the Vaughn Family. ‘she was a shining example of how we must invest time and energy in our young people, and this scholarship is a way her legacy can continue to advance students in the education of science. She would be proud to know the students who apply and receive scholarships from this fund.”
