Planned Giving

Valedictorian Society: For centuries valedictorians have been honored for the scholastic achievement and rewarded with the opportunity to provide the last work at graduation ceremonies. The origin of “valedictorian” is the Latin vale dicere, which means to say farewell. At Family Scholar House, our Valedictorian Society is a treasured group of individuals who value education and want to use their “last word” to make a difference in the lives of others through a planned gift in support of Family Scholar House’s mission.
