The family of a longtime Dixon High School teacher who died in a car accident March 31 has established a memorial fund to raise money toward a scholarship in his name.
Donations are being accepted for the Shawn Tutt Memorial Fund at First Northern Bank’s Dixon branch. The scholarships will likely begin being issued in 2021 to graduating seniors who meet scholastic criteria and had some element of self-discovery by helping others.
Helping others is something Tutt — who taught computer technology, history and an array of other courses at Dixon High for 22 years — was all about.
