Throughout its long history, Church Farm School has provided scholarships to young men from low income or single parent families.
Military families have also been served by this unique institution which exists simply to give a boy a chance for a future of fulfillment and service to his community and country.
More than one-tenth of all known Church Farm School alumni have served in the military, and a few have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Some, like Major General (Ret.) Eric Weller ’74 and Brigadier General (PA Ret.) Cecil Hengeveld ‘64 have risen to the highest ranks in their respective services.
Today, some CFS students are cared for by family members who serve in the military, are disabled veterans and/or are currently deployed. In memory or honor of CFS alumni veterans and current service members, Church Farm School has initiated the Military Scholarship Fund for young men from military families. According to Mr. Hengeveld, “Though we have tried to support all CFS students through the years, my wife Peggy and I wanted to do something special to recognize the sacrifices our military families make every day.”
Church Farm School respectfully requests contributions to augment the Military Scholarship Fund. Gifts of any size are welcomed, gifts of $6,000 or more will support one student for one year. For more information about the Fund, contact Lori McDermott at 610.363.5338 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
