College Scholarship

The Haley Royko Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of a remarkable community member who sadly passed away in the spring of 2018 at a young age.

Despite significant medical challenges, Haley contributed to our community in ways that have left an impression on our hearts and souls. She was a brave warrior who educated and connected patients with one another for support and advice.

It is APFED’s honor to present this scholarship in Haley’s memory.
