In 2017, the family of Holly Wheeler Westbrook established a scholarship through the Hancock Community Education Foundation to award a graduating Hancock Central School Senior.
Holly was a member of the Hancock Central School graduating class of 1995 and attended Broome Community College. She married James Westbrook and resided in Fishs Eddy, NY. She was employed at Tompkins Bluestone and took great pride in her work. Holly was an amazing daughter, sister, wife, and mother. Her greatest joy was her daughter, Lexus Brookay. She loved her family and friends and loved to laugh; her smile could brighten any room. Despite her battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis, she lived her life to the fullest and never gave up.
