Carolyn and Joseph Martin Family Scholarship


Carolyn and Joseph Martin moved to Bettendorf in 1994. Their two children Anne and Sam graduated from Pleasant Valley High School.  Shortly before they started high school, Pleasant Valley initiated the Service Learning requirement for graduation. Both were active in a variety of sports and extra-curricular activities, but their time spent volunteering provided unusual and meaningful learning opportunities for them. With this scholarship the Martin family hopes to honor a Pleasant Valley senior who has helped others through exemplary volunteer or service work.
