During her 27 years as the Candor Elementary Secretary, Amy Shepardson had a tremendous impact on the children, families and staff members she came in contact with. In Amy’s memory, a scholarship has been created to be given to a High School Senior each year. Towards the end of each school year, an advisory committee will consult with Amy’s family to select the recipient. We will accept donations to fund this award in the following forms: 

● Checks can be made out to the Amy Shepardson Scholarship Fund . Checks can either be mailed to Candor Elementary School (2 Academy Street Candor, New York 13743) or dropped off at the District Office or Elementary School. 

● If you would like to make a cash donation, please contact Wendy Watkins at or Christine Pierce at

*All donations are tax deductible. Tax forms will be sent to donors after donations are processed.* 

Also, there is an account set up for the scholarship at the Neighborhood Redemption Center 765 NY-17C in Owego (next to KFC) for can and bottle returns. When dropping off bags of cans/bottles, please tell them it is for the Amy Shepardson Scholarship Fund and they will deposit the funds directly into the fund. *We will also have a wagon to drop off bags of cans/bottles located in the Iron Kettle Farm parking lot for the next few weeks so if you would prefer to drop off there, feel free.* 

Thank you for your support and for honoring the memory of Amy Shepardson.
