Berryville, VA, The Clarke County Education Foundation (CCEF) is proud to announce a new endowment scholarship in memory of Lesley Denise Geiszler (Holman), 1989 graduate of Clarke County High School. 

This $500 merit based scholarship will be given yearly to a member of the CCHS graduating class who participated in girls basketball, girls swimming or boys swimming during their senior year. An essay entitled: Why is education important to you? will be required of qualified applicants.

This scholarship is in loving memory of Lesley “Denise” Geiszler (Holman).  Denise loved family, children, and dogs.  As the first in the family to graduate from college, she felt that education was key to elevating yourself to your highest potential. Denise‚Äôs love for education led to her being an educator for several years. Not only did Denise inspire our children to reach educational goals, but she inspired family and friends to do the same.  Outside of her love and tremendous value for education, she loved watching her children swim. She selflessly gave up many of her weekends to take her kids to practice and meets. Denise had a constant love for her family and everything her children.  To honor her legacy, her family has established memorial scholarships for Clarke County High School (her Alma Mater, Class of 1989) and Midlothian High School (our children’s Alma Mater, Class of 2017 & Class of 2020) in Chesterfield County to help others reach their highest potential and become the best versions of themselves.
