The William Christian Lewis Shadburne Memorial Scholarship

Shadburne Scholarship 0417

Son of Park Community’s Executive Vice President, David Shadburne, Christian Shadburne was an athlete, a leader, and a servant. A 2012 graduate of Hart County High School, Christian was an avid sports fan participating in basketball, soccer, baseball, tennis, and cross-country. He earned all-district honors in basketball and soccer, and was a captain on his basketball, soccer and tennis teams. Christian was selected as a Kentucky Governor Scholar, voted Mr. Hart County High School, and maintained a 4.0 GPA. Christian played an active role in his church and had a passion for serving at nursing homes and camps for children with disabilities. After graduating from high school, Christian enrolled at Western Kentucky University majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry. His career aspiration was to be a pediatrician. While completing his junior year at Western Kentucky University he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Despite radiation and chemotherapy treatments, Christian passed from this life on May 26, 2016 at the age of 22.

Though Christian’s life was short, he left a legacy that will be remembered. His priority in life was to be faithful to his God. He cared about his community and tried to help others whenever he could. It was Christian’s character to go out of his way to help his friends and loved ones. Even when he was fighting cancer, he continued to think of others before he thought of himself. To be a friend of Christian’s meant never having to face a challenge alone.

Park Community Credit Union is awarding five (5) $1,000 non-renewable scholarships in memory of Christian to honor his achievements and hard work and remember his unselfish desire to help his community. It is our goal to reward well rounded students who seek to improve their community as Christian did. Applications for this scholarship must be postmarked by May 5, 2018.
