The purpose of The Jeffrey S. Gaunt Scholarship is to honor Jeff’s legacy by providing a $2,000 4 year ($500 per year) scholarship to a deserving graduate of West Chester East High School to support the cost of college tuition.
Jeffrey Gaunt was born in March 1981. Raised in West Chester, Pennsylvania, he graduated from West Chester East High School in 1999. Jeff enjoyed all that life had to offer, including family, friendship, sports and the outdoors. Through his enjoyable charm, entertaining sense of humor, and overall unique personality he captured the attention of all whom he encountered.
Jeff was a true leader and had the ability to instill passion and direction in those around him. Jeff is no longer with us, but his good spirit and fun-loving nature continue to touch the many people who had the privilege of knowing him. It is with the memory of this great young man that The Jeffrey S. Gaunt Scholarship was founded. This scholarship is restricted to students at East High School and students must apply in accordance with the scholarship procedures and timeline by the guidance counselors at that high school.
