WASHINGTON DECA STEVEN ANTHONY RHONE, JR. CHAPTER FINANCIAL NEED SCHOLARSHIP

Steven was 19 years old when he was killed on June 2, 2007, by a hit-and-run drunk driver while attempting to cross the street. His family and friends offer this scholarship as a way for his legacy to live on in way that envelopes his positive spirit and love of life. We hope to help other students towards productive futures as contributing members to our society.
