Announcing the Arthur Smith Endowed Scholarship

The Church Farm School community is pleased to announce the Arthur Smith Endowed Scholarship. Art Smith, who started at Church Farm School in 1978 as a houseparent, has served the school faithfully for 45 years and is currently the Dean of Students, a member of our STEM faculty and the varsity wrestling coach. Whether Art coached you in wrestling or track, encouraged your love of science in his classroom or mentored you as a student or peer, his influence on CFS is immeasurable.

In honor of Art's continued passion for the CFS mission, Talmadge O'Neill '86 and other grateful alumni have pledged to match 2:1 any gift up to $100,000 toward the endowment of the Arthur Smith Scholarship. In other words, for every $1 you give, the scholarship receives $2 - this is a great opportunity to double your gift's impact!

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

Will you help by making a gift that will support students the way Art continues to support our scholars, alumni and faculty?
