Thank you for considering a donation to the Janet E Keady Memorial Scholarship!
Donations fund the Janet E. Keady Memorial Scholarship, awarded to a graduating senior at Pleasant Valley High School.  This scholarship is a part of the Pleasant Valley Schools Educational Foundation.  Its mission is to provide a scholarship to every deserving senior at PVHS.  The Janet E. Keady Memorial is awarded to a student who plans to attend college or a vocational school.  The recipient will demonstrate academic accomplishment, participation in extra-curricular activities, and financial need.  Thank you for your donation!

Janet Keady was the mother of four Pleasant Valley High School graduates. As a parent, she was a great proponent of our school and proud of our academic reputation. Mrs. Keady wanted to help deserving students with strong scholastic accomplishments and financial need by creating a scholarship for use in public postsecondary education. Her belief that financial need not be a deterrent for a bright, hardworking student’s college aspirations was a driving force in creating her memorial scholarship. Janet Keady lived a very short life after a courageous battle with cancer, but has had a long-lasting impact on the many lives her scholarship has touched.


The Janet E. Keady Memorial Scholarship ‘s recipient must demonstrate financial need and attend a school whose costs are in line with/or less than the regents institutions in Iowa.


This is a $1,000 scholarship, one of 70 given to PVHS graduating seniors by the Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation.  Since its start in 1990, the scholarship has been awarded to 26 students, directly impacting their continued education.  Your donation will allow this scholarship to continue.
