Garrettsville – The Brittany Myer’s Scholarship Fund was founded 11 years ago as a memorial to Brittany, a 9 year old little girl who lost her life in a tragic car accident in 2000. Brittany attended James A. Garfield Elementary School where she was an avid softball player and a complete joy to everyone. Left behind are her parents, Tom and Belinda Myers, along with siblings and many loved ones.

The Brittany Myers Memorial poker run organization holds an annual event to fund the scholarship program. From the proceeds of this event, two scholarships are awarded each year to graduating seniors at James A. Garfield High School. In order to be considered for the scholarship, students are required to write an essay on why they feel they should receive the scholarship. This year’s scholarships were awarded to Darian Roberts and Brent Jones. Congratulations!!

In addition to the annual scholarships, the fund also contributes a portion of their proceeds to the Youth Softball League and the Special Needs Program at James A. Garfield School.
