Brianna Baumert Scholarship Fund

The Brianna Baumert Scholarship Fund is designed to help preschool families that may be experiencing financial difficulty due to an illness, job loss, or other challenges and are unable to afford preschool tuition. Recipients are chosen by the staff and or the preschool board.

Brianna embodied the characteristics we value and teach at the preschool. She was a vibrant, generous, energetic young person with a love for life and Jesus. As a former preschool student, we are pleased to have Brianna’s name be another connection between the preschool and the people of Elkhorn Hills Church. It is our intention to honor Brianna and her family by helping young families to provide their children with an education in Christ.
