We are thrilled to announce the Gordon Liddle Phd. Scholarship Fund. Dr. Liddle was a lifelong educator whose passion was sharing his knowledge with others. As a professor of Human Development at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Liddle taught and supported many of his students in their efforts to become who they wanted to be.
Dr. Liddle also felt it his duty to improve his community and the world. He worked with the Civil Rights Movement, National Alliance on Mental Health, and served for over 31 years on the Clark County Water Board. He strongly believed in everyone contributing to and striving to make the world a better place by sharing ideas and time, as well as providing financial support to reach his goal.
It is in that spirit that his family wishes us to create this scholarship fund. It will be used to help fund arts education and training for those who cannot afford it otherwise.
If you are interested in contributing to this fund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
