Stone and Holt Weeks Educa Scholarship


In 2019 the Stone and Holt Weeks Foundation will be supporting each Educa trip with three $250 scholarships. This grant was created to honor and remember Stone Weeks and Holt Weeks, two brothers, remarkable young men who were tragically killed by a highway trucking crash in the summer of 2009.

The Weeks Brothers lived extremely full lives in their too short time on Earth. Stone and Holt not only believed, but proved—through their volunteerism and incredible vitality—that you can do good and have fun at the same time. They both very much wanted to make this world a better place for all. And they each had the gift of making everything they did so much fun—with creativity and originality.
