A tragic accident claimed his life in 1992, and his parents, Jack and Rose, formed this scholarship in 1993 to honor his memory and provide educational support to other students. Bruce was a very talented artist, therefore the scholarship benefits a student who has been a member of the Mt. Vernon National Art Society.
