Justin Shronk Memorial Scholarship Now Official
August 6, 2021

Temple University students looking to enter the worlds of Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Mass Media, now have an opportunity to get some real help in achieving their dreams, thanks to Brian Lemke, some key PokerRoad Forum members and of course PokerRoad's beloved and deeply missed friend Justin Shronk.

The newly established Justin Shronk Scholarship, is an ongoing endowment available to students in need at the Temple University School of Communications and Theater, who are interested in fulfilling careers in the media regardless of the pay. 

The idea of the scholarship was originally purposed in a PokerRoad Forum post by member Robert Gauss and thanks to him and many other members willing to donate whatever they could, was already building momentum by the time Shronk's cousin WSOP bracelet winner Brian Lemke got involved, really sending things into overdrive by donating $25,000 himself to the worthy cause.

Thanks to all those that helped out so far, the Justin Shronk Scholarship will now be a permanent opportunity available for Temple students, according to a recent letter Brian posted in the PokerRoad forums, but to really make it something even more amazing, donations are still needed and welcome. 

Those interested in making a tax deductable contribution can contact Ashley Lomery, the Director of Development and Alumni Relations at Temple University- another one of the key people who really helped get all this off the ground.  For Ashley's contact information, including where to send your checks, please see below:
