The Wellington Community Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2024 "Arle & Ken Adams" Scholarship, open to all *Wellington graduating high school seniors.
The foundation went to great lengths to ensure that the Adams’ legacy lives on by naming the Wellington Community Foundation’s first scholarship program the “Arle & Ken Adams" Scholarship, in honor of all they have contributed to the village. Arle and Ken Adams’ service to the community far outreached all business, political or developer thresholds in their long and successful careers. Former Palm Beach County Commissioner Ken Adams believed that Wellington has accomplished remarkable things because of the great people and great leaders who care deeply and continue to do things for their children and their children’s children.
When the Wellington Community Foundation became an independent nonprofit organization benefiting the seniors, children and veterans of Wellington, the board of directors immediately invited Ken Adams to take a seat on the board, and without hesitation, he jumped right in. Although he later went on to become member emeritus and in 2020 passed away, he considered it a wonderful honor that the foundation developed a scholarship in both his name and the name of his beloved late wife.
The "Arle & Ken Adams Scholarship" will serve those in need who can benefit by a hand up in creating tomorrow’s leaders.
The 2024 application process is now underway and is seeking individuals who fit the scholarship criteria. The application deadline is April 19, 2024, and the foundation will be announcing the scholarship recipients in May 2024.
Developing this scholarship is in direct support of the foundation’s mission of “Building A Stronger Community” . For more information on how to become involved, or to donate to the Arle & Ken Adams Scholarship program click here
