As many of you know, Eric Travis Schilling passed away in June of this year. A graduate of Baylor University, he was completing his coursework in the Master’s in Counseling program at Divine Mercy University and he was on pace to finish his studies this fall.
Travis’s obituary poignantly explains that he lived to love and serve the Lord. He sought to help those who were suffering and felt great responsibility to take care of his family. He was always smiling and happy, never taking himself too seriously. Goofy, hilarious and kind beyond measure, Travis enriched the lives of those he knew. He was 29 years old.
To honor Travis’s memory and help students with financial needs, we would like to set up the Eric Travis Schilling Scholarship Fund at Divine Mercy University. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 from students, alumni, faculty and staff to be awarded in the coming months. The more we raise the more we can help students in need.
It is important to note that we have received a matching pledge so all contributions made before Dec. 31st will be doubled!
