The Friends of the Cascade Library Memorial Scholarship was launched in 2008 as a tribute to Marilyn Meyer, a founding member of the Friends of the Cascade Library who worked tirelessly on behalf of the organization and the Cascade Library for more than 35 years until her death in November 2007.
The Friends continue to support the Cascade Library and its many services to the community through a network of dedicated volunteers. In honor of their efforts, an award in the amount of $1,500 will be given to a high school senior residing in Cascade or Ada townships who best exemplifies the volunteer spirit that motivated Mrs. Meyer and inspires current members of the Friends. The volunteer service in question should be civic and secular in nature, with an emphasis on community assistance and/or improvement.
