The Rev. A. Stanley Bullock, Jr. Fund for Youth Development and Scholarships

A fund for youth scholarships in honor and memory of Fr. Stanley Bullock - initiated with $50,000 given in his honor by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation - provides funds for children in financial need for weeklong summer camp experiences.

"Stanley loved Camp Weed and it's where we met," said Kay Bullock, remembering happy times at St. Teresa Beach."  Kay says that she is pleased that the Bullock Fund offers ongoing opportunity for others in The Episcopal Diocese of Florida to further contribute to the fund in order to grow the fund so that, long into the future, it will benefit generations of children in need.

"As each scholarship is made from its funds and income, " said Bishop John Howard, "we will be glorifying God and fondly remembering and recognizing Fr. Bullock and his contributions to our common life, mission and ministry.  I am excited by the Bullock Fund's potential to make a real difference in the lives of our youth and for our Diocese."

A graduate of the University of Florida and the University of the South at Sewanee, Father Bullock was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Hamilton West.  He served 20 years in parish ministry - 17 of those years in this Diocese - before becoming Assistant Director and Senior Program Officer of the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation.

'He would be thrilled with the growth of the scholarship program.  He had a special love for youth programs, and as I've said, we met at Camp Weed, so that is an especially important place for us," adds Kay.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Bullock Fund so that increasing numbers of children in need can enjoy the beautiful Camp Weed campus and are able to participate in nature activities while visiting.
