Lola Coleman-Ralston Family Memorial Scholarship Fund

Lola Coleman-Ralston Family Memorial Scholarship Fund

  • EST. 2008

This fund has been established by several generations of the Ralston family to honor the memory of Lola Coleman-Ralston. Lola graduated from Scio Normal School in 1903 at the age of 16. She became a teacher and taught at the Carroll County #8 School, just north of Mechanicstown. Eventually she married and raised 12 children, who attended Carrollton High School between 1926 and 1949, many of them earning academic honors. Although education was an important value in the family, financial difficulties prevented Lola’s children from attending college.

In Lola’s memory, the Ralston family wishes to assist deserving Carrollton High School students in obtaining a college education. Candidates will be Carrollton High School students who demonstrate academic merit and financial need. Other considerations will be personal integrity, a desire and determination to succeed, participation in extra-curricular/civic activities, and an interest in the community. Priority will be given to residents of Fox and East Townships.
