KAREN L. BAKER SCHOLARSHIP

karenbakerscholarship-0

The Team CMMD Foundation’s mission is to support those fighting cancer and their families in our community and beyond.  In support of this mission, each year the Foundation awards the Karen Baker Scholarship.

Karen Baker was a full-time working mother of two who bravely fought liposarcoma, a rare form of soft-tissue cancer. With the support of her family, Karen showed exceptional courage through eight years of treatments to fight her cancer. On November 3, 2016, Karen's fight ended.  Her legacy will continue through you.

In honor of Karen's bravery, we offer you the opportunity to apply for a special college scholarship.  At the end of the 2017 academic year, one or more qualifying students graduating from Chester County high schools will be awarded college scholarships from the Team CMMD Foundation.
