The Lee Sheldon Memorial Education Scholarship Fund

Lee M. Sheldon
August 9, 1950 - October 3, 2014

The Lee Sheldon Education Scholarship Fund was established by the Blue Water Tea Party in memorial to Lee Sheldon, one of its founding members.

Lee Sheldon was a local businesswoman, wife, mother, American Patriot, and follower of Jesus Christ, who understood America's need to return to the founding principles of Limited Government, Fiscal Responsibility, Free Market Economics, and Morality. She upheld our nation's founding principles embodied in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and in our own state's constitution which declares in Article VIII, Section 1, that "Religion, morality and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged."

Lee Sheldon continually prayed for America's return to God, who—as Thomas Jefferson observed in the Declaration of Independence—has endowed all people with the right to "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness..." Lee worked to educate herself and others about the principles of Liberty, and it was her desire to see America turn back to God and the Godly principles upon which our nation was established.

In memory of Lee Sheldon's unwavering dedication to promoting the principles necessary to live free, Blue Water Tea Party has established the Lee Sheldon Education Scholarship Fund.

An annual scholarship will be awarded to the winner of the Lee Sheldon Education Scholarship Fund Essay Contest.
