2022 Thomas J. Patton  YMCA  Scholarship                    


The Thomas J. Patton/YMCA Scholarship was established in 1989 by Robert (Fizz) Miller to honor Tom Patton for his 40 plus years of service to the people of Tuscarawas County through his work with the Tuscarawas County YMCA.  The scholarship has been given each year since 1990 with 127 awards being given to 81 individuals.  The scholarship is awarded each year to area students who have been active at the Tuscarawas County YMCA through leadership activities and program participation.  Special consideration is given to those individuals who have provided volunteer leadership.
