John W. Jung
This scholarship was created in honor of John W. Jung, class of 2001. John was a member of WASB and helped lead the team that began All-Campus Party. Despite his dynamic leadership, ability to excel in and outside of school, and his commitment to serving others, John struggled with an ongoing battle against substance abuse and addiction.
