Daniel K. Wepryk Foudation
Each year, the foundation selects a scholarship recipient from Downingtown East High School and Downingtown West High School, in which we provide tuition assistance for a graduating senior. Students apply for the scholarship by submitting an essay about addiction along with their school transcripts and teacher recommendations. The recipients, carefully chosen by our board members, must demonstrate traits of COURAGE, STRENGTH, AND HOPE. These three pillars are important to our foundation because they represent the qualities that Danny lived every day of his young life.
Take a look at what some of our winners are up to!
