John Maicher Memorial Scholarship Fund

41872796_1568674444629251_r.jpeg41872796_1568674572866747_r.jpegJohn Maicher was born with a birth defect that left him struggling with numerous health problems and various surgeries throughout his life.  Despite his circumstances, he remained a positive force with a fierce passion for life. Due to ongoing complications, John required a transplant involving the liver, small intestine, stomach and pancreas at Miami transplant center. John tragically lost his battle on August 4, 2018. 

John loved and truly enjoyed high school at Daniel Boone. After John passed his friends got together wanting to keep John's memory alive. They decided on the John Maicher Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship is to benefit a Daniel Boone High School senior. To apply for the scholarship they have to be involved in school and community-and major in music or communications.

Please donate (no amount is too small) so we can continue to benefit a special Daniel Boone student in the wonderful memory of John.
