Dr. Harry Thomas Scholarship is Awarded

Scholarship recipient, Katie Raffel and Garst Museum Director, Dr. Johnson.
The Garst Museum and the Darke County Historical Society is pleased to announce that Katie Raffel received the H. G. Thomas Medical Scholarship for the 2012-13 academic year. The H. G. Thomas Medical Scholarship program, administered by the Darke County Historical Society, was established and funded in 1971 by Lowell Thomas and his sister Pherbia Thomas Thornburg, in memory of their father Dr. Harry G. Thomas. The scholarship program was later supplemented by a bequest from Lowell Thomas’s estate and interest generated by the fund also supplements the fund.

To be eligible for this scholarship the applicant must be a resident of Darke County and a graduate of a Darke County high school. Applicants must have been accepted into a medical school. Students may be considered for scholarship awards for up to four years during medical school. This is the fourth year Katie Raffel has received funds from the Thomas Medical Scholarship fund.
