Donald E. Harrel Memorial Scholarship

The Donald E. Harrel Memorial Scholarship was established in 1989 in memory of Donald E. Harrel, who for many years was a booster and supporter for the David Douglas School District.

An endowment fund has been established to fund one scholarship to be awarded annually to a David Douglas High School graduating senior.  The scholarship is not renewable.  The annual scholarship amount will be determined by the earnings from the endowment.
