Sycamore Education Foundation Announces Liam P. Sullivan Memorial Scholarship

The Sycamore Education Foundation (SEF) is pleased to announce a new scholarship that will be available to Sycamore High School students in the graduating class of 2021. The Sullivan family has established the Liam P. Sullivan Memorial Scholarship to honor the life and legacy of their son.

Liam P. Sullivan graduated from Sycamore High School in 2015. His passion for sports was evident on the football field, wrestling mat, and the rugby pitch. He embodied the motto, “Once a Spartan, Always a Spartan,” as a Sycamore High School athlete and a fan.  

“He’d be the first one smiling after a win and the first one to console others after a loss,” said his mother, Susan Sullivan.   “He was always there to cheer on or cheer up his teammates whatever the outcome.” 

After high school, Liam attended the College of Dupage before becoming a Marine (2016-2020). While active, he also completed certification at the Heavy Construction Academy (New Hampshire). His love for rugby continued as a member of the Men’s Fox Valley Rugby Club (St. Charles, IL), and the principles he learned through sports, including determination and commitment, allowed him to apply himself and achieve his goals. 

“We are so grateful for the generosity of the Sullivan family. It is an honor to establish this scholarship in memory of Liam.  His legacy will live on through the Sycamore students that will be positively impacted by this scholarship for years to come,” said Lauren Holtz, SEF Executive Director.

Sycamore students can apply for this $500 scholarship by accessing the application form through the Naviance system.  They must be a graduating senior, accepted to a university, junior college, or a trade school. The student must have played rugby as a Sycamore High School student and exhibit an appreciation for the values exemplified by Liam’s life.  

Those interested in contributing to the Liam P. Sullivan Memorial Scholarship, can donate by writing a check to the Sycamore Education Foundation 245 W. Exchange Street Sycamore, IL 60178 or directly through the SEF website.  Please note the Liam P. Sullivan Memorial Scholarship under “Tribute Name”.

About the Sycamore Education Foundation

The Sycamore Education Foundation supports the more than 3,565 students, faculty and administrators of Sycamore School District 427.

Stage Coach Players (SCP) continues to “Spark Hope” this season as they once again be collecting food for and household items giving away fabric if you are looking to create your own masks on the second and fourth Tuesdays for the foreseeable future.  The collection to be held on Tues., Feb. 9, 2021 will run from 4to 6 p.m. and be held in the theatre’s back parking lot.  The address is 126 S. 5th Street in DeKalb.

SCP will continue its partnership with Safe Passage, DeKalb County’s only Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Crisis Center.  SCP will be collecting household items, hygiene items, hair products, cleaning supplies and gift cards.  To learn more about Safe Passage and for a more specific list of most-needed items, visit safepassagedv.org and, in the menu, click on the “Ways to Give” icon.

This week’s food donations will be going to the Kishwaukee College Food Pantry, called Kody’s Cupboard.  Kody’s Cupboard helps provide supplemental resources to alleviate hunger and meet basic needs for the Kishwaukee College campus community.  We will be accepting non-perishable items such as canned meat, vegetables and fruit along with boxed food and items in plastic containers.  We are also accepting paper products.  Please no glass containers.  Because of the current virus concerns as with many local food pantries, there is a shortage of necessary items for those in need. 

During the month of February, SCP will also be seeking input from the local community in order to diversify their offerings, engage more actively with all members of the DeKalb and Sycamore community, and improve outreach.  To that end, a survey will be available from February 1 – 20, 2021, to gather public feedback and will be linked from the homepage at stagecoachplayers.com.  The survey will also be sent out via social media channels For more information on SCP, visit our website www.stagecoachplayers.com or find us on Facebook and Twitter.
