The Cannon Family Scholarships are named in honor of Chris Cannon and his family in recognition of their generous support for Deerfield-Windsor School for many years.
Students who have attended Deerfield-Windsor for at least one year are eligible to apply for this half-tuition scholarship. Two non-renewable Cannon Family Scholarships are awarded each school year.
The Scholarships will be presented to students currently enrolled in grades 9, 10, or 11. While academic record and extracurricular activities are considered in the selection process, the scholarship is primarily based on the essay written. Students enter by completing an application and by writing an essay in a supervised setting. The Scholarship Committee decides the winners of the awards.
Ken Rodgers graduated from Deerfield-Windsor in 1976. He died while attending college. To perpetuate his memory, his friends each year give a scholarship to a rising Deerfield-Windsor senior who exemplifies Ken’s spirit and personality. Through this award, the spirit, energy, and friendliness that Ken reflected will not be forgotten but will be perpetually renewed by the examples of the recipients of this scholarship.
