Mr. Steven J. Reese, formerly of Jasonville, had been very successful in his business life and wished to return his good fortune to others in the Shakamak School system. He had also recently donated a major piece of art from his private collection to the Indiana University museum. Unfortunately, Mr. Reese passed away unexpectedly on December 12, 2017. However, his family was committed to making sure his wishes were carried out and his passion for supporting Shakamak graduates was honored as planned. The scholarship was first announced prior to Jasonville/Shakamak Homecoming in the fall of 2017.
