According to Szynal, the scholarships will be $2,000 each and paid in four installments over the course of the student’s four years at college. The scholarship will also go towards vocational and trade schools.
It’s for “anyone who tries to better themselves,” Sailor said.
Szynal said that Sailor gave loose guidelines and ultimately decided to leave it up to Fairfield who receives the scholarship.
“Someone that tries hard and gets decent grades,” Szynal said.
Sailor said that he wanted people to remember his wife of 61 years and the life they had together.
“I just wanted to do something to have her remembered by,” he said. “We just had a wonderful life I just want that to live on.”
Officials from Fairfield could not be reached for comment due to the spring break holiday.
