Polnisch Scholarship


Paula and Bill Shepherd established the Richard J. Polnisch Memorial Scholarship Fund in late 2002 in memory of Paula’s father, Richard J. Polnisch.  Paula stated about her father, “My Dad was a man of strong Christian faith and deep trust.  He believed in tithing and self-giving.  In his generosity he wanted us to set aside a portion of his life to reach others with Christ’s love.”
