Q: How do I establish a scholarship fund in honor of someone?

Establishing a fund in honor of a loved one is a wonderful way in which to give to Carroll High School. Funds may be named to memorialize a deceased family member or friend, or to honor a living family member or friend. They may also be named for a teacher, corporation or organization, or they can commemorate a special birthday, anniversary or achievement.
You can establish a named scholarship by donating to Carroll's Endowment and specifying for whom or for what you are giving.  If you wish to to establish a named scholarship fund, please contact Pam Staton Tipps at the Advancement Office (937) 253-3338.
