The Rebecca Shepard Scholarship was established in the late 80’s to honor and recognize the founder of Acorn School. Becky Shepard started the school in 1972 in memory of her grandmother, Jeanie Richardson Kerns, and in honor of childhood – that fleeting but critical period in life where you must encourage children to build confidence in themselves and let their imaginations soar.
She continues to share her musical talent with all the students at Acorn by providing each class with a scheduled music time each week. She encourages singing, movement and creative dramatics through playing the piano, banjo, auto harp and rhythm instruments.
The scholarship monies are awarded to families that would otherwise find this early educational program impossible without some financial assistance.
