Emily Reese Memorial Scholarship

$7,319 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 85 people in 5 months
Emily Fay Reese passed away peacefully on November 3, 2018 at the age of 44.  She was a daughter, sister, mother, friend, lover, educator, health care activist, and a powerful force of beauty and nature.  Her greatest joy in life was always her children -- Mad, KJ, and Thomas.  Her Celebration of Life will be held at 1pm on November 10, 2018 at Word of Life Church (2375 S. Virginia).

In lieu of flowers, please consider a small donation to a scholarship in her name.  Emily and our children envisioned scholarships to support high school debaters.  Debate has been an endless source of distraction and love for our family - a safe harbor during Emily's courageous nearly 9-year cancer journey.  For many students, debate is the key to a better life.  We want to honor her memory by blessing a student(s).  Emily had in mind one particular student, but we also intend the scholarship to extend into the future for many years and benefit primarily students in Urban Debate Leagues (like the www.sudl.org) and scholars who attend the Women's Debate Institute ( www.womensdebateinstitute.org).

We will be working diligently to move from this platform to a 501(c)(3) entity later this week.  The scholarship is for the benefit of others, not for the Reeses or their Pieces.

We celebrated Emily's beautiful life on Saturday, it was hard but she was so LOVED. The stories that were told and the words that were shared provided incredible comfort to us all. Our scholarship fund is growing and Emily would be so happy. Thank you so very much to everyone who has contributed.
I wanted to share Senator Cortez Masto's kind words about Emily that were offered today:
