This fund provides scholarships to students graduating from Hinckley-Big Rock, Kaneland or West Aurora High School who have demonstrated high academic achievement and leadership potential.
The fund was established at the time of George H. Alexander’s death by the Alexander Family.
Mr. Alexander (1911-1988) was a director of the Community Foundation for thirty-two years, serving as chairman for four of those years. He also served as a senior or emeritus director for two years prior to his death.
The Alexander Family has been engaged in the lumber business in Aurora for over one hundred years.
