Elwood - the Dog that Made the Whole World Smile.
With the passing of Elwood on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013, Elwood's mom, Karen, and her friends wanted Elwood's work to continue. It was suggested that an Elwood Scholarship be established to carry on his legacy. Elwood showed the world that beauty is only the surface. That societal conventions of pretty and handsome are skewed. Elwood's message is that it is OK to be different and it should not stop you from being your best. It is our hope that Elwood's Scholarship will help students with special needs be their best so they can, in turn, go into the world with confidence, sharing love, and make the world a better place for people and pets...just like Elwood did in his 8 years on earth.
A scholarship in Elwood's name is being set up by the Gloucester County College Foundation. This scholarship will help special needs young adults pay for tuition to attend GCC and the ACT (Adult Center for Transition) program at GCC.

Checks can be made to the Gloucester County College Foundation and it must have "Elwood Scholarship" in the memo line to be earmarked for his scholarship.
We never thought that all of Elwood's good work would end so suddenly so we will continue to help Elwood help others.
