Fort Scott Christian Heights School would like to thank the family of the late Tom W. Davis for choosing the school’s New Building Fund as the recipient of this year’s Tom W. Davis Memorial Endowed Fund disbursement.
Mr. and Mrs. Davis’s grandchildren, Zoey and Zeke Hartman, children of Dr. Grant Hartman and Dr. Heather Davis, are students at Fort Scott Christian Heights.
“We are honored to have a part in continuing his legacy through the mentoring of the youth of our community,” according to a press release from the school.
The Tom W. Davis Memorial Endowed Fund was established in 2015 as part of the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas.
Tom was a long-time teacher, athletic coach, administrator, and mentor to young people, having started and ended his 40+ year career in Fort Scott.
Tom’s family wants to continue to honor his name with annual awards to organizations and entities that involve children of all ages.
It is the intent of this memorial fund to help further efforts in education, recreation, athletics, and other activities for the benefit of young people.
Tom was always involved in a positive way with kids!
