Scholarships

The Payton Alexander Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2022 by the Alexander Family, educators, and coaches at New Berlin West High School. Each year, a portion of proceeds from the Payton Alexander Memorial Golf Outing will fund these scholarships and establish an endowment to ensure scholarships will be available in perpetuity.

This scholarship honors the 2020 alumna from New Berlin West who participated in the girls' varsity golf team. Payton battled cancer for four years; first being diagnosed in 2018. She lost her fight to cancer in November of 2021. She loved golf and cared about her education. Payton always had a positive attitude, worked hard, and volunteered for many non-profit organizations. Payton focused on helping others and knew how to put a smile on someone's face. This scholarship is intended to continue her legacy and bring awareness to childhood cancer.

Anyone may donate to this fund.
