Andrew Range Endowed Scholarship
The Andrew Range Scholarship was established to honor and celebrate the life of this remarkable young man and to pay forward his positive influence. It is to recognize and reward the qualities and traits Andrew embodied and to lighten the financial educational burden by providing an educational scholarship fund to be granted to a current student who represents the traits of an “Andrew’s Rangers" and who is attending Southern Illinois University-Carbondale Law.
To be a Ranger, someone needs to exemplify compassion, empathy, resilience, and an outlook on life that is infectious. They need to have unwavering dedication to their friends, family, studies, and sports. They need to be able to accept whatever cards are dealt to them and go forward without fear, making sure to bring others with them. A Ranger also has to have a sense of humor that stretches through all types, including the ability to laugh at themselves. They need to be able to look at life as something worth living to the fullest and make every moment count.
