Alison Klepper Memorial Fund
Created by Fred and Mary Ann Klepper as a way to honor and celebrate their daughter Alison. In 2003, at just 23 years old, Alison was killed in an accident caused by a drunk driver. Alison was a talented artist and photographer as well as an accomplished skier, snowboarder, surfer and horsewoman. During her summer breaks from Warwick High School and Alfred University, she worked as a wrangler and trail guide on Montauk Long Island, New York. Alison also raised two seeing eye dogs. Alison faced adversity, namely bi-polar disorder, but she never gave up and always looked forward to her next challenge. Alison’s greatest talent was helping others in distress, both people and animals. This fund awards a scholarship at Warwick Valley High School to a graduating senior and to an Orange-Ulster BOCES student who plans to pursue higher education and major in photography, equine studies, graphic arts or media arts. To apply for the Warwick scholarship, see your Guidance Counselor or click here to download an application. To apply for the BOCES scholarship click here. All applications are to be returned to your Guidance Department unless otherwise stated.
