The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains is pleased to announce the formation of the Bob Crimmel Memorial Scholarship. This permanent scholarship fund has been established by Mr. Crimmel’s family and friends. It will provide an annual award to a Tunkhannock Area High School graduating Senior who will matriculate at college or another post-secondary degree program, and who writes a winning essay about overcoming personal adversity.

For thirty four years, Mr. Crimmel taught Physical Education and Health in the Tunkhannock Area Middle School. He also coached swimming, football, and baseball. Bob was an integral part of the school district and had a broad impact on many students. With this new scholarship in his honor, the Crimmel family wishes to carry on Bob’s legacy of supporting the young people of the Tunkhannock Area School District for many generations to come.

Donations to honor Bob’s memory, and to support Tunkhannock Area students, may be sent to the Bob Crimmel Memorial Scholarship Fund at The Community Foundation 270 Lake Avenue Montrose, PA 18801 or online at
