Brian C. Garnett Scholarship

Brian Garnett was a freshman at Salina High School Central when he lost his life in an automobile accident on August 11, 2000.  Brian always had a smile on his face and was beloved by those who came to know him.  He earned letters in academics and cross country.  Brian also loved music. He was an avid drummer and an accomplished clarinet player.  Although Brian could be an exceptional student, he was also committed to participating in many other activities.  It is for this reason that the scholarships being offered in his name are dedicated to students who demonstrate a well-rounded lifestyle by receiving admirable grades while also actively participating in extracurricular activities.  These scholarships are dedicated to the honor and memory of Brian Clarke Garnett and his love for life.  He is deeply missed but it is through this scholarship program that his family believes he can be remembered in a positive way while helping to enable other young people to achieve their dreams of a college education.

3 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 are available.
