In 1994 Claire Weller and other family and friends began a perpetual fund in memory of her husband, Richard Weller, to provide a scholarship for a graduating high school senior from Good Hope. In 2007 we received an estate gift from Dorothy Myers which was presented to us by her husband George. The Weller family was contacted to obtain permission to expand the financial base of the fund in order to provide more scholarships and to see about their willingness to allow the fund to be renamed. Having received their permission and an additional large anonymous gift, the 2008 annual meeting voted to take some of Dorothy Myers’s estate gift, along with the Weller money and the anonymous gift, and rename the fund, the Weller-Myers Scholarship Fund.
