Dine to Donate for the Tom and Ann Knapke Scholarship

CELINA, OH - On Wednesday, January 23, 2019, CJ’s HighMarks and JT’s Brew & Grill, donated 25% of daily sales to the Dr. Thomas and Ann Knapke Scholarship with the Western Ohio Educational Foundation (WOEF). Dr. Knapke was a former Dean of the Lake Campus, WOEF Board Member, Professor Emeritus, and member of the Grand Lake St. Marys Restoration Committee. He and his wife Ann were advocates for the arts, and teaching was very important to both of them. Ann passed away in 2013 and Tom unexpectedly in 2018. 

Their legacies will live on through their contributions to students attending Wright State University - Lake Campus. Gretchen Rentz, Coordinator for Development and Community Relations said, “We are so grateful to live in such a supportive community. Special thanks to the Irmscher family for the donation of $2,400 towards the Knapke Scholarship.”
