The recognition is determined following nominations and a vote by the Foundation’s board of directors. Recipients are honored on a plaque in the Susquehannock High School Auditorium lobby.

In 2015, Bryan created the James Nicholson Memorial Scholarship in honor of his brother who passed away in 1998. This scholarship is awarded to a senior planning to major in a business-related field in college. He has continued to fund this scholarship annually.

Lynda dedicated her 42-year career at Head Start of York County to helping children and families with socio-economic hardships.  The Lynda Johnson Sheffer Book Award assists graduating Susquehannock seniors who have overcome hardship to purchase books or other media in their first year of college or technical school. Endowment funding for this award has been provided by a grateful former Head Start student of Mrs. Sheffer.
