The Todd C. Bryant Memorial Scholarship Fund was created memory of Todd Bryant, an outstanding student and athlete.

Todd Christopher Bryant was a graduate of Yorkville High School.  He achieved the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America and was a member of the 4×800 relay team, which finished first in the Class A State Competition in 1989.

In 1993, he graduated Summa Cum Laude from Bradley University.  During his college years he served as captain of the track team, treasurer of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and president of the Chi Epsilon Fraternity (an honor society open to Civil Engineers).

Todd received the Watonga Award (the highest award bestowed to a student-athlete) and the C.M. Hewitt MVP Track Award in 1990 and 1991.

At Bradley, he held the second best indoor 800 meter time as well as the second best indoor 1,000 meter time and the third fastest outdoor 800 meter mark.

Todd was employed by Smith Engineering Company in McHenry.

Scholarships in his name are awarded to graduates of local high schools.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

Board Member & Scholarship Committee Member

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

President Emeritus

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.
