The Art Washburn Memorial Scholarship

The Art Washburn Memorial Scholarship was established in 2021 to celebrate the life and legacy of William Arthur “Art” Washburn III, a husband, father, friend, and mentor to many, who dedicated his life to the service of others.


Art was born on November 10th, 1966 and attended Wake Forest University where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy. He received a Master's Degree in Business Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University and further earned the designation of Certified Investment Analyst from the Investment Management Consultants Association.


Art placed family and community above all else serving foremost as a loving father and husband, but also in various leadership capacities throughout the community including having been a Board Member for the Virginia Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a Board Member and Chair of the American Heart Association (Central VA), serving on the National Leadership Council for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, being a Board Member of the Richmond Strikers Soccer Club and a Board Member of Henrico Business Leaders. He was a volunteer soccer coach for the YMCA and the Richmond Strikers Soccer Club providing guidance and leadership to youth throughout the greater Richmond area. Art was on the Glen Allen Youth Athletic Association Basketball Operations Committee. Art was the Co-Principal and Founder of Alpha Omega Wealth Management providing financial and investment services to individuals and businesses throughout the U.S. Art passed away peacefully at the age of 50 on February 12th, 2017, yet his teachings remain prevalent in the lives of many, including his three sons, Alex, Zach, and Christopher.
