In Loving Memory of Terri Coolidge
The Terri Coolidge Scholarship Fund
Terri Coolidge, the loving mother of Skip and Savannah, thought of Parkway Christian School as part of her family.
Terri enjoyed the time she spent at the school and considered Parkway her family’s second home.
The sudden loss of Terri last year was devastating news to our families. The healing process of Terri’s loss has only begun.
Through our healing, Parkway Christian School has created The Terri Coolidge Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is for
current Parkway students’ families who have lost a parent. In addition to their terrible loss, these families may be faced
with the unexpected financial responsibility of private school tuition on one parent’s income and may be looking at the
possibility of additional loss by losing their home at Parkway just when they most need the love and support of their
Parkway Family. This scholarship fund honors the memory of Terri Coolidge and her family. She was a kind, generous, and devoted mother committed to her children’s education.
As a close-knit community, we know there is always someone in need of a prayer, a hug, or a helping hand. If you would like to contribute to the Terri Coolidge Scholarship Fund, to help members of our Parkway community, you can do so by making an online donation or mailing your donation:

Sally Walker Scholarship
In 2004, when Sally Walker retired, several parents of Parkway Christian School established a scholarship system for use in emergency situations for the students of our Preschool and Elementary Schools. The fund has been used many times over the years. The PTOs of both the Preschool and Elementary Schools both contribute to the fund.
Purpose and Policy:
The purpose and Board policy of the Sally Walker Scholarship Fund is to provide limited emergency financial assistance to parents of Parkway Christian Preschool, Elementary and Middle School families. Emergency conditions would encompass family illness, death, loss of employment or other situations that cause undue hardship on the family. All applications must be accompanied by a letter stating the needs of the family and why the applicant should be considered. The fund shall not be used in situations of domestic disputes where there are differences and conflicts between parents. The fund may not be applied to any fees including, but not limited to, the annual capital fee.
The fund will be limited to provide no more than $1000 per year per family.
While it is not required to repay the funds, individuals who use the funds should be informed, if possible, they repay the funds for future use or to give back through volunteer hours.
The fund shall not be used in situations of domestic disputes where there are differences and conflict between parents.
Upon receiving a request for use of the Fund, the Principal shall have the parent fill out the appropriate form and submit the request to the Scholarship Sub Committee of the School Board.
The Sub Committee consisting of the Chairperson of the School Board, the Principal, and a representative of a parent group (PTO) shall meet or confer within 3 days to decide the merits of the request.
The decision shall be relayed by the Principal in writing to the parent, and the Chair of the Board shall report the decision to the full board at the next meeting.
