About the Scholarship Fund

This Fund was endowed in 1999 and was made possible by a bequest of Katherine Hempstock.

In 1966, she became the first of two women members of Session. For many years she was a dedicated and caring Sunday School teacher. Jack Hempstock was the first Secretary of the Official Board. He was also a long-time leader with the “82nd” (Carleton Memorial) Scout Troop.
