We are proud to announce the Gavin A. Fleten Memorial Servant’s Heart Award to honor our co-founder, friend and THE model of what it means to have a servant’s heart. From his years of delivering Meals on Wheels to serving as the de facto hunter/gatherer for anyone in need of his unique ability to bring people together for a common cause, Gavin was a force of nature unlike any other. Gavin was not driven toward service by any particular cause. He derived his passion from his desire to connect with people and to foster a network of connections that went deeper than most of us could ever strive to achieve on our own.
The Gavin A. Fleten Memorial Servant’s Heart Award will be awarded as a scholarship annually by the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation to recognize a graduating senior who demonstrates a Servant’s Heart based upon their exceptional efforts to better their school and their community.
The amount of the scholarship will be based upon funds raised. Every $10,000 provides an annual $500 scholarship in perpetuity. We hope in time to be able to both increase the value of the scholarship and to be able to recognize multiple recipients annually. Today, however, our goal is to get to the first $10,000 so we can create a lasting legacy for our friend, Gavin, while recognizing future generations with a passion for service.
