  • Cocalico High School seniors Matt McKinney (second from right) and Brooke Meckley (left) each received $500 as the first two recipients of the Richard H. Kimball Scholarship Fund. To qualify, applicants had to maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 and had to participate in the 2015 Cocalico High School Soccer program. Also, they were required to write a short essay answering what lessons learned from soccer will carry on in their lives, and their plans and reasons regarding college studies. The scholarship is the result of a wager between its namesake and his grandson, Mark Thompson (center), who bet him $100 that he would live to be 100 years old. Unfortunately, on July 27, 2015, Kimball won the wager less than a week after celebrating his 93rd birthday. Unable to claim the bet, Thompson took the $100 and began scholarship fund in his grandfather’s name. Debbie Thompson Kimball’s daughter, is at right. Currently, family and friends of Kimball are funding the scholarship. Those interested in contributing to the Richard H. Kimball Scholarship fund should email RHKscholarship@gmail.com or search “Richard H. Kimball Scholarship Fund” on Faceboook. Photo courtesy Mark Thompson.
