Christina Coats Awarded David O. Kile and Marjorie B. Kile Scholarship

Congratulations to Christina Coats of Wawaka for receiving the David O. Kile and Marjorie B. Kile Scholarship. Christina is studying Math Education and Dance.

Longtime residents of Noble County, David O. and Marjorie B. Kile have dedicated their lives to making a difference, and giving back. As a retired teacher, Marjorie has seen first-hand the difference a scholarship can make when awarded to a student in search of higher learning, regardless of age. David and Marjorie know that as a traditional or non-traditional student, access to higher education can be difficult. Thanks to the generosity of the Kile’s, this fund is an opportunity for both traditional students and non-traditional students to pursue their dream.

The David O. Kile and Marjorie B. Kile Scholarship is available to any Noble County resident who is at least 19 years of age with a high school diploma, or GED, in pursuit of higher education in a field of their choice. This scholarship is available to applicants planning to attend, or are currently enrolled, either full-time or part-time, in an accredited vocational school, or two-year or four-year college or university. The award is given one time, with no restriction on applying in subsequent years.

Thank you to the generous donors who made this scholarship possible.

General scholarships through the Community Foundation of Noble County will be available online mid November 2018 to January 15, 2019. Visit the community foundation’s website at and click on the Scholarship tab to learn more.
