Scholarship Purpose: This scholarship was established in 2007 by John Joseph Kennedy. He graduated from Illinois State University in 1961 and received his bachelor of science degree in education, with an English-journalism major.

After graduation he relocated to the San Francisco Bay area where he taught high school English, journalism, and social studies.
