In 2010 the Clayton S. Beck Scholarship Fund was set up as a financial resource for a deserving senior at North Lake High School, where Clay himself graduated and ran a number of extracurricular activities for many years. Worthy candidates are athletes with a minimum 3.5 GPA, of good moral character and college bound. Evaluation and selection is by a committee of faculty and administrators. To date, the scholarship has averaged about $1,000 per recipient, with funds raised through private donations and the sale of greeting cards, T-shirts and framed artwork featuring the paintings and photography of Clay's parents, Cindy and Craig.
