The legacy of Karolina Holtrey, and daughter, Carolyn, continues to support the community of Frankfort through three separate endowments created in their name in 2000.
Supporting the area's library, skilled nursing facility and educational needs, the Holtrey Endowments are core to the fabric of life in Benzie County and a testament to the foresight, kindness and care of its donors.
What impression will you make? Let's give it forward, together.
The USS Indianapolis/ Gwinn "Angel" Scholarship Endowment works with the USS Indianapolis CA-35 Legacy Organization to preserve the legacy and story of the USS Indianapolis by recognizing, with an annual scholarship award, those who have direct relatives who were involved with the USS Indianapolis and the rescue of the survivors. Prospective and continuing college students are encouraged to research the story of the USS Indianapolis CA-35 and write about their own families.
This scholarship is open to descendants (includes stepchildren) of USS Indianapolis CA-35 crew members involved in the tragedy- its survivors, lost at sea (LAS), rescue and recovery crew, and those who have merited honorary survivor status by the Survivors Organization.
