A scholarship fund has been established at the Pedrozzi Foundation in memory of Dr. John Shirley and in honor of his life of service to his family, country, and community.

Dr. Shirley was a distinguished WWII veteran who was awarded a Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and a Purple Heart as well as the Croix de Guerre by French President Jacques Chirac. He opened Livermore’s first veterinary hospital, authored two books, and was an avid traveler. He is a former Livermore council member and mayor, serving on the City Council from 1958 to 1966. He was dedicated to making Livermore the best it could be through his civil service on the council and volunteer service with the Livermore Rotary Club, among many other avenues in which he served the community.

Annually, at least one scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior graduating from a Livermore high school who plans on pursuing career in the veterinary field and/or exemplifies Dr. Shirley’s motto of service above self.
