William L. and Mary Richards Law Scholarship
As founding members of Brookfield Academy, Mr. William L. and Mrs. Mary Richards Law envisioned a school that would work in unison with families to prepare its students to cherish individual freedom and the responsibilities that were part of that freedom. At the heart of the Brookfield Academy education was a belief in the value of a strong Judeo-Christian ethic that would guide behavior, purpose, and action. Freedom to all the Founders was a God-given right, but it also meant that each student should be challenged to reach their highest potential. Armed with the ideals at the foundation of this education, combined with the content of learning, the Academy student would graduate prepared to lead their family, have a successful career, and impact their community.
Mr. and Mrs. Law knew an Academy education was unique and special. It had the potential to change the life of a student. In 2018, the Law Family established the William L. and Mary Richards Law Scholarship to provide a deserving student with the opportunity to receive the gift of a Brookfield Academy education. This endowed scholarship would be awarded to a student intent on realizing their God-given right to be an exemplary, free citizen and leader.
To qualify, a student must:
- be entering grade 9 or higher
