The Grant and Anna Lea Dohm Memorial Endowed Scholarship was recently established at Fort Hays State University with an anonymous donation of $11,000.
The donors wished to honor the Dohms' strong ties to western Kansas. They spent their entire married life in Gove County, Kansas. Anna Lea attended FHSU but did not graduate before she started teaching in a one-room school house south of Grinnell. Grant was a Kansas state representative from Gove County for several terms and was always supportive of FHSU. He did not attend college, but he felt it was important for young people in western Kansas to obtain a college education.
The recipient of this scholarship must be an undergraduate student properly enrolled in any curriculum at FHSU. The annual available earnings from the principal will be the basis for the award.
The FHSU Foundation is the fundraising arm of Fort Hays State University and is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This gift, as do all funds received by the Foundation, will be added to the total of the ongoing Cornerstone Campaign that will conclude June 30 of this year.
