This scholarship was started by Henry Albert in the early 1990s to pay tribute to his parents, Joseph and Lea, who lived and raised their many children not too far from the Sand Hill area/community of Augusta. Henry was grateful for all his parents taught him, and how they prepared him for all of the challenges that life brings. The scholarship was originally established as a way to honor and assist one or more local students in that community, who were also graduates of schools tied to St. Michael's Parish, and were attending local universities or trade schools.
