Clarence ‘Dutch’ and Viona (Kirchner) Lengerich regarded education as one of the most important ingredients of a person’s life. They grew up during the Great Depression and did not have the opportunity to acquire more than an elementary education. They loved to read and recognized the importance of reading.
Life-time residents of Adams County, this scholarship fund was established in loving memory by their only son, Don Lengerich, who recognizes the importance of a solid education. This scholarship reflects the importance of education and life-long learning and is intended to further the educational goals of students who attended St. Joe School.
