David A. Cofer, Sr. Memorial Scholarship

David A. Cofer, Sr.A message from the Cofer Family…..

It is with great joy and excitement that our family is announcing the establishment of the David A. Cofer, Sr. Memorial Scholarship in honor of David’s memory at the University of Rio Grande.  Establishing the scholarship offers a special way to ensure that his legacy lives on, both in our hearts and with those that never knew him. 

David received his Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Rio Grande in 1965. As a teacher with Columbus Public Schools for over thirty years, we know how important education was to him.  In David’s memory and in honor of his life, we would like to be able to help current and future students attending the University of Rio Grande achieve their dreams by lessening the financial stress associated with obtaining their college degree.  More specifically, it is our plan to award the scholarship on an annual basis to a University of Rio Grande student from Ohio, majoring in Education.  The first scholarship will be awarded for use during the 2014/2015 academic year.

We are inviting you to give thoughtful consideration to joining us in contributing to this effort by making a tax exempt financial gift that carries forth David’s legacy in a manner that honors his memory and pays forward the opportunity for others to achieve their life dreams.  We look forward to you joining us in this journey of impacting the lives of future students of the University of Rio Grande.
