New Scholarship in Memory of Molly Coker

Molly CokerThe many friends and family of the late Molly Coker have come together to establish a permanent college scholarship in her memory that will benefit generations of graduates of the Tunkhannock Area School District. Molly, the daughter of Rylan P. Coker and Rebecca J. Lane, passed away last May at the age of 13. She has been described as gentle, kind, feisty, fierce, and brave. She was an old soul in a young body who was light years ahead of her time. A quote from Dr. Who, one of Molly’s favorite television shows, best captures her spirit: “Never be cruel, never be cowardly. Remember hate is always foolish, and love is always wise. Always try to be nice, but never fail to be kind. Laugh hard, run fast, be kind.” The Molly Coker Memorial Scholarship will provide college tuition assistance to a graduating Tunkhannock student who best exhibits the qualities of kindness, love, and service to others that Molly embodied. To honor Molly’s memory, and to enhance the assistance for future generations of students, additional donations to the scholarship endowment are always welcomed and can be mailed to The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains at 270 Lake Avenue in Montrose, PA 18801, or made online at www.community-foundation.org. Molly would most likely be smiling at the help her scholarship will provide to young people for many generations to come.
