The Robin Memorial Scholarship
In memory of Robin Scott-Jackson, we at South Cook ISC have created "The Robin Memorial
Scholarship." This scholarship is created to provide financial assistance to our RISE
students who are continuing on to college/trade school or military training.
Robin joined the South Cook ISC 4 family in 2001. She worked as the registrar until her
passing in 2017. During her time with us, she carried the spirit of excellence and
demonstrated a strong work ethic.
Robin left a positive impact on everyone she met. She loved and was dedicated to her
family. To the schools South Cook ISC 4 service, she was the kind voice over the phone
that helped with workshop registrations. To her fellow co-workers, she inspired them to
do their best. She was a giver and an encourager.
Robin encountered many hardships in life; however, she displayed courage to face the
challenges and to overcome them while being kind and thoughtful, often putting the needs
of others above her own.
Education was important to Robin, so it is only fitting that we establish this scholarship
in her honor. It is our hope this scholarship will inspire and encourage our students to
persevere and reach for excellence. As portrayed by Robin's life, we believe our students
can RISE above their challenges while leaving a positive impact on others.
The Robin Memorial Scholarship will award two current or former RISE students
$1000 each to further their education at a college or university, a trade school,
or for military enrollment.
To qualify, the student must have successfully finished the RISE program. Students
