The Alexander Michael Dodson Memorial Scholarship Fund was created to celebrate the memory of Alexander and the joy he brought to all those around him.

Alexander was born on May 3, 2007, to Daniel Dodson and Michelle Emerson. At just 19 ½ months old, he passed away in his sleep on December 20, 2008.

From the day he was born, Alexander was smiling and happy. He loved to make others happy as well and could always be counted on for a kiss or a hug. He loved to dance, eat waffles, read books, play with his friends, and watch Wow Wow Wubbzy.

The fund currently supports scholarships for Trenton students to educational summer camps.

Contributions to the Alexander Michael Dodson Memorial Scholarship Fund can be made by check, payable to the Princeton Area Community Foundation with “Alexander Michael Dodson” in the memo line, and mailed to the Princeton Area Community Foundation.

You may also make a credit card contribution by calling the Community Foundation at 609-219-1800.
