About the Yoder Brothers Memorial Foundation:
The Yoder Brothers, Joshua & Tyler, Memorial Scholarship Foundation grants four-year renewable college scholarships to senior student-athletes at Berkshire, Cardinal, and Newbury high schools in Geauga County. In addition, the Foundation also grants a two-year scholarship for study at a Technical or Trade school to a senior student-athlete. The Memorial Foundation also gives financial support for special projects for the schools and classrooms and for children’s recreational athletic programs.
Since its beginnings in 1997, the scholarship program has awarded seniors in three Geauga County schools – Berkshire, Cardinal and Newbury with more than $890,000 in academic scholarships. More than 67 worthy and grateful scholarship recipients have received their diplomas or certificates since the scholarship program was initiated in 1997. Today, the Yoder Foundation’s scholarship program is one of the largest scholarship providers in Northeast Ohio.
