The Fauquier County community lost a beloved member in September of 2018. Theodore James Warzinski was just 18 years old when he passed away, having finished at Fauquier High School earlier that year and with plans to attend Lord Fairfax and eventually, Virginia Tech.
To honor his memory, his family launched the Theodore James Warzinski Memorial Scholarship through the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation. In its debut year, this scholarship is available to FHS students, with priority given to students attending Lord Fairfax Community College, as well as first-generation college students and those who demonstrate financial need. It offers $2,500 for the first year with the possibility of renewing for an additional $2,500 for the second year.
There is much to honor and remember about Theodore’s life. He impacted people in a variety of circles, from his many hockey and lacrosse teammates, to school friends, his five older siblings, and his parents. He was beloved for his sense of humor, empathy, and quiet determination, all of which instilled respect and devotion from those who knew him.
FHS students seeking to apply for the scholarship can obtain more information at the school’s guidance office or by visiting the Community Foundation’s website: www.npcf.org. Applications are due online by March 15 by 11:50 p.m. To donate to the fund, contact Jane Bowling-Wilson.
Established in 2000, the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation is a public charity that strengthens the communities of Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison and Rappahannock through philanthropy.
