  • The James J. Kiernan Memorial
    Scholarship Fund
    The 9
    th
    annual Seashore Classic is being run this year in
    honor of James Kiernan. Mr. Kiernan was known to all
    in this community as a philanthropist of the highest
    esteem. To keep his name ever present in a charitable
    way his wife and four daughters have created the James
    J. Kiernan Memorial Scholarship Fund. For over 30
    years Mr. Kiernan has given of himself for numerous
    charities in this area. He has donated time and money
    not only personally but through his restaurant, Irish
    Eyes. His family has stated in all the condolences they
    have received since Mr. Kiernan passed one word comes
    up again and again…generosity. They believe he would
    want his passion for giving to stay alive in this
    community.
    This newly established fund will be handled by Horizon
    Philanthropic of Lewes, DE. Information on how to
    apply for this scholarship will be available in the near
    future.
