Elgeva Bacon was a loyal and dedicated supporter of children and youth. She recalled how small tokens of recognition had pleased and greatly influenced her desire to strive for higher goals and wanted other young people to have the same sense of pride, personal satisfaction and appreciation. To further this goal, Elgeva generously supported youth programs in her church and in the community.
Elgeva was a long-time member of the Beloit Chapter of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution.
The objectives of the Society are to: promote education, promote preservation of history for future generations, and to promote patriotic endeavors. It is in her name that this scholarship is given.
