The Joe Hogan Memorial Scholarship established in 2011 is to assist local post-secondary students who have limited financial resources due to the impact of cancer on their immediate family. In 2012, the family changed the name to the Sherron Hogan Memorial Scholarship to honor their mother who died of cancer.
The Joe Hogan Memorial Golf Tournament founded in 1997 is to honor the memory of Joe Hogan, who died of cancer. The family is committed to stressing the importance of a quality education despite difficult financial circumstances. In Joe & Sherron’s memory, and in keeping with the family’s priorities, the Sherron Hogan Memorial Scholarship Committee will award financial assistance to deserving young person(s) entering college, university, or other post-secondary education programs, who have experienced the impact of cancer in their immediate family. The scholarship funds are being provided primarily by the Joe Hogan Memorial Golf Tournament through the Windsor Essex County Cancer Centre Foundation. Though other community donors may support the fund.
The Sherron Hogan Memorial Scholarship Committee will provide an annual scholarship (minimum of $5000) to be shared among successful applicants. The Scholarship Selection Committee will choose the successful applicants from all qualified applicants based upon the following primary criteria:
- The student must have experienced the impact of cancer either personally or within
- his/her immediate family.
- The student must be a graduate/graduating from a secondary school within Windsor Essex.
- The student must be accepted and registered in a recognized post-secondary program.
- The student must have limited financial resources.
