Scholarship

In 2010, my family and I started a scholarship in Zach’s honor. The scholarship is given to a graduating senior from Hornell High School in the amount of $1,000.00 per year for 4 years, totaling $4,000.00 per recipient. The recipient of the award must meet certain criterion: (1) Possess certain traits that exemplifies Zach as a person, and (2) Write an essay about what the Marine slogan “Semper Fi” means to them. The scholarship is awarded at graduation and is funded by the annual Zachary Smith Memorial Golf Tournament.
