The Adele Losh Scholarship Fund was established in 1993 by the late Clarence “Ted” Losh. Mr. Losh established this fund to provide scholarships to worthy high school graduates and on-going college students in memory of his daughter,
Adele, who died of polio at the age of sixteen. Mr. Losh was a member of Ripley First Presbyterian Church from 1970 until his death August 26, 1992. His wife, Fay Storch Losh, was also a member from April 1981 until her death June 13, 2007.
This year marked the 24nd Anniversary of the Scholarship. There have been 170 scholarships awarded to 88 different recipients for a total scholarship award of
$142,130.00. The original fund was invested in 1993 with the Presbyterian
U.S.A. Foundation. All scholarship awards, to date, have been made from the interest earned with no money coming from the original investment. For the years of 2016 – 2020, an additional $1000.00 per year will be added from a bequest from Mrs.
