Number of Recipients: 
2
2018 Winners:
Clinton Connelly and Nicole Foulkrod
Description:
The Thomas McGinty – Patrick Connelly Scholarship will be given annually to a student that is there to assist at any given time to help another student, teacher or visitor in time of need.  The receiver should have the characteristics of a go getter that may not always succeed but is willing to go the extra mile to try.

Tom was a local behavioral counselor that shared his love for life by depicting the interests, goals, achievements, blunders and bad habits of family members and friends as the character in his newspaper cartoon, pollywog pond.

Pat worked as Custodial and Maintenance Manager (Servicemaster) for General McLane and was an announcer for some sporting events. 

Tom and Pat were the best of friends growing up and later in life.  Always willing to help anyone in need, whether it be with a project or just to provide some advice. These two friends left us early but their hearts are still with us continuing to help those in need.
