This scholarship was founded and created by Steve and Marjan Cuckler in memory of Pari Joon Razi, Marjan’s grandmother. She lived a philanthropic and altruistic life, even through the greatest adversity of escaping her country as a political refugee. Despite leaving everything behind for life and freedom, she continued to live out the rest of her life putting others first and helping those in need. This scholarship was established to honor her and her selfless acts, and to continue her legacy for many generations to come.
This scholarship will provide post-secondary support to a Delaware County graduating senior who is choosing an area of study focused on helping others, such as a degree in nursing, social work, counseling or education.
