Members of Geneseo’s Class of 1984 are creating a scholarship in memory of their late classmate, Chris Heath.

Heath died on Jan. 1, 2017, after a brief illness.

“Our goal is to award a scholarship to a graduating GHS senior for many years to come. We are reaching out to members of our graduating class, to Chris’ friends and community members for donations to help us reach this goal,” said classmate Teri Storm.

“Chris was a large part of Geneseo and a friend to so many of us,” she said. “He gave us so many unique gifts over the years,” she said. “We can’t think of a better way to honor Chris’ memory than to support those graduating seniors who exemplify some of those same characteristics we all dearly loved in Chris.”

Contributions can be sent to: Chris Heath Scholarship, c/o Central Trust Bank Illinois Trust Department, P.O. Box 89, Geneseo, IL 61254.

The scholarship is set up under the Geneseo Foundation umbrella and all donations are tax deductible.
