Feldkamp/Jacobson Memorial Scholarship

To mark their 20th reunion, the Loma Linda Academy Class of 1990 established the Feldkamp/Jacobson Memorial Scholarship in memory of Vanessa Feldkamp Pullen ’89, Erin Jacobson ’91, and Amy Feldkamp Jacobson ’93. Classmates remember them as friends who enjoyed life, were academic as well as athletic, strived for success yet remained humble, and had a unique ability to put life in perspective. The Class of 1990 could think of no greater tribute than to recognize and encourage young students at LLA who embody those same qualities exemplified by Vanessa, Erin, and Amy.
