Joe Rhile Endowed Scholarship

“[Joe] left a lasting impression: in the classroom, as our driver's ed teacher, stacking bales of hay on a flatbed truck, water polo in the pool, delivering a sermon at the Chapel using a piece of rope as a prop to deliver a tangible message and, last but certainly not least, in the wrestling room on a mat or in the locker room on one knee before every wrestling match reciting The Lord’s Prayer.” - CFS Alumnus 
Church Farm School alumni, inspired and forever grateful for the 40+ years of service former faculty member Joseph E. Rhile provided Church Farm School, have joined together to create the first-ever named endowed scholarship: The Joseph E. Rhile Endowed Scholarship.

This Scholarship will exist in perpetuity and provide financial support to a student every year for the remainder of Church Farm School’s existence. To finalize this Scholarship, your support is needed. A goal of $125,000 must be reached, but the larger the endowment, the larger the aid provided to the student.

Will you help by making a gift that will support students the way Joe Rhile supported them during his tenure? Making a gift online is fast and secure; simply complete the form below. To make a gift via check, please mail a check made payable to Church Farm School with ‘Joe Rhile Fund’ clearly written in the memo line to the Development Office, Church Farm School, 1001 E. Lincoln Highway, Exton, PA 19341. For other ways to make a gift or if you have any questions, please contact Judy Mullane ( | 610.363.5333).
*I understand that the gift I am making is to help establish an endowed Scholarship and is restricted for use by that purpose. I acknowledge that I can learn about the endowment level of the Fund and any gifts made to the Fund through Church Farm School’s Annual Report and Report of Gifts each August/September.
