Jorge Luis Acevedo, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund

Berks County Community Foundation

This fund was established in 2003 by the family of Jorge Luis (“J.R.”) Acevedo, Jr. in J.R.’s memory. J.R. was a student at Reading High School at the time of his unexpected death at age 17. During his life, J.R. touched a lot of people, developed a passion for cooking, and looked forward to a promising career in the culinary arts.

This fund provides scholarships to seniors at Reading High School who who will be continuing their education in a culinary arts program. If there are no individuals entering the culinary arts program, then someone furthering their education in hotel and restaurant management will be considered. The ideal candidate will display a passion for the culinary arts and be a constructive member of the Reading High School community, as J.R. was.
