Welcome to TheAaronProject.org
The Aaron Project was conceived out of the tragic loss of 9-year-old Aaron Beauchamp on March 26, 2012 in a bus accident that took his life and injured a number of other St. Lucie County children on their way home from school.
The Beauchamp family and their friends wish to honor the memory of Aaron, who was a leader in all aspects of his life: academically, athletically, and artistically. The Aaron Project's goal is to annually award monetary college scholarships to deserving St. Lucie County high school seniors who desire to further their educations, even as Aaron's own life was tragically cut short. Since 2013, The Aaron Project has awarded $167,000 in scholarships and 56 pairs of personalized "AB2" cleats.
The Aaron Project will become a self-supporting source of funds for its core projects. The Aaron Beauchamp Scholarship, The Golden Cleat Award, and the Aaron Beauchamp Arts Grant.
The Mission of the Aaron Beauchamp project is to honor the memory of Aaron Beauchamp by recognizing the three areas in which his life contributions were tragically unrealized, but where his family may support the growth of other young people in the three areas in which he excelled: academics, athletics, and visual arts.
Recognize well-rounded St. Lucie County Students each year with a one-time scholarship.
Honor a St. Lucie County student athlete annually for academics, athleticism, and leadership with the Golden Cleat Award with a pair of sport shoes of the recipient's choice.
Support and recognize the importance of the visual arts in St. Lucie County schools by awarding a yearly grant to a St. Lucie County teacher or group of teachers for a yearly project that incorporates the visual arts into the curriculum.
