Ralph and Lenore Martin Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund

The Ralph and Lenore Martin Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund joined FAO in 2018 to honor the legacies of Ralph and Lenore Martin. Mr. Martin spent his life’s career with the Kibler Milling Company and Mrs. Martin retired after many years of services to the Western Brown Local School District as an elementary teacher. Both of them possessed strong community spirit and had a lasting influence on many lives. The Ralph and Lenore Martin Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund represents a lasting way to honor their contributions to the Western Brown community.

Scholarship awards from this Fund are available to graduating seniors from the Western Brown Local School District. Two scholarships will be awarded annually. One scholarship will be awarded to a senior who resides in the Western Brown Local School District; a second scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior who attends the Mount Orab Church of Christ. Scholarship awards will support Western Brown seniors planning to continue their education at a two or four year accredited college or university. Scholarships applications are available at the Western Brown Local School District.

Gifts to the Ralph and Lenore Martin Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund are tax deductible and can be made in many ways, including cash, bequests, and life insurance.
