Local businessman establishes three Pal-Mac scholarships

by WayneTimes.com
March 31, 2012

John Graham, an alumnus of the Palmyra-Macedon Class of 1984, recently established three new scholarships with the Palmyra-Macedon Chapter of Dollars for Scholars. Each of these scholarships will be presented for the first time at the Senior Awards Ceremony on June 7, 2012 at the High School.

Graham Enterprises will sponsor the Lock 29 Scholarship in honor of Franklin A. Graham Sr. whose family purchased the restaurant in 1992. In an effort to demonstrate their commitment to the community, the Grahams will present this scholarship to someone who intends to pursue a career in hospitality, restaurant management or culinary science.

Custom 31 Graphics will fund a second scholarship for a student intending to pursue a career in graphics, design or advertising. Special consideration will be given to a graduate with an interest in business. Located on Main Street in Palmyra, Custom 31 is a business that specializes in signage, custom clothing, printing and design services.

Koncert for Kids is the third scholarship and will be presented to a student who has shown an interest in music and who wishes to pursue a career working with children. John Graham and Timothy Walker established the annual Koncert for Kids in 2005 to assist local families in need. Besides funding the scholarship, proceeds from the event support other local programs as well.

Founded in 1989, the Palmyra-Macedon Chapter of Dollars for Scholars is a not-for- profit organization that relies on the generosity of local citizens. Through the proceeds from the annual phone-a-thon and through individual scholarships, the chapter has been able to award over one million dollars to almost 1500 students since its inception. June’s award ceremony is expected to award over $100,000 to members of the Class of 2012. If you would like more information on making a donation or establishing a scholarship, please contact Joan DeCann, Vice-President, at 597-6374.
