THE DAVID J YELLEN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
There were two things in life that David loved the most: making a difference in the lives of others and having a great time with his friends and family.
David dedicated over 30 years of his life to Special Education, trying to impact the lives of each and every one he met. To carry on his motto of “Making a Difference”, David's son created the David J Yellen Memorial Scholarship Fund.
This fund will benefit students of the Lisbon Public Schools, with proceeds also going to the Special Olympics - an organization that held an important place in David's heart.
OUR CONNECTION WITH THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS
David J Yellen dedicated over 30 years of his life to Special Education and created strong ties with the Connecticut chapter of the Special Olympics. To honor this connection and keep it alive, proceeds of the David J Yellen Scholarship Fund will go to the Special Olympics of Connecticut to help continue to "make a difference" in the lives of those in the special needs community.
