Insurance agency funds scholarship

CONVOY — Stahl Stoller Meyer Insurance recently donated in excess of $17,000 to the Convoy Community Foundation in honor of Michael and Nancy Meyer. The amount will be used for the Mike and Nancy Meyer Scholarship Fund, in memory of Mike Meyer, a partner of Stahl Stoller Meyer Insurance.

The generous gift from the Stahl Stoller Meyer Insurance Agency will enable the Convoy Community Foundation to present a scholarship to a Crestview graduating senior annually in honor of Mike and Nancy Meyer.   Mike and Nancy are the parents of three children all who graduated from the Crestview Schools.   Mike and Nancy strongly believed in assisting young graduates to further their education after high school.

The Convoy Community Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization and was founded in 1979.  The purpose of the Foundation is to undertake and promote charitable activities for the benefit of the individuals, groups and communities in the Crestview School District.   President Bob Schumm stated, “Endowment Fund donors may give bequests, legacies, devises, transfers, or gifts to the fund.   All assets received will remain in perpetuity in a trust under the supervision of a local financial institution.   The Foundation conducts its charitable activities using only the investment revenue generated by the principal.   Schumm added, “Those who donate $5,000 or more will have a plaque permanently installed on the wall in the Crestview High School.”

Persons interested in making bequests or donations to the Convoy Community Memorial Endowment Fund are encouraged to contact a Foundation Trustee.   Those trustees are:  Bob Schumm, president; Joe Steffan, vice president; Denise Frey, treasurer; Shirley Laipply, secretary, Ron Schumm, Greg Kulwicki, Dr. Tom Lautzenheiser, Gary Weck, Marilyn Reed, and Diane Manz.
