Awards and Scholarships


Ellen Davis Memorial Band Award

Summit Hill Junior High School


In 2006, the Ellen Davis Memorial Band award was established as a tribute to Ellen and a way to keep Ellen's spirit and memory alive. Annually this award is presented to a Summit Hill 7th Grade Band Member. The award ceremony takes place at the Summit Hill Junior High School Holiday Band Concert in December. The person chosen is someone who has some of the same qualities that Ellen displayed; a willingness to work hard, a positive outlook, and the courage to take whatever challenges come his or her way.


Ellen Davis Memorial Scholarship

Lincoln-Way East High High School


The Ellen Davis Memorial Scholarship was created in 2010 in loving memory of our daughter Ellen Davis. If Ellen had not lost her battle with Osteosarcoma, she would have graduated from Lincoln-Way North in 2010. Ellen decided early in life that she would attend college and achieve her goal of being a Marine Biologist. She was not able to complete this goal but in her memory we provide a Scholarship to one Lincoln-Way Senior who will go to college to study in either the Arts or Sciences. Ellen was a loving and caring person who was always willing to help others. In that vein, this scholarship is provided to help others achieve their college goals.
