A new scholarship will reward selfless community service in honor of a longtime member of the Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company.
The Thomas S. Hodder Memorial Scholarship was recently created to honor Hodder, a life member of the CTVFC who passed away in September 2020.
Over his 48 years of service, Hodder served as an EMT and past vice commander for the Cranberry Volunteer Ambulance Corps. He also volunteered for the fire police in his later years. He selflessly served his community and exemplified the definition of volunteering
The scholarship will recognize and be awarded to an active member of the CTVFC who exemplifies the qualities Hodder: dedication to the community through volunteering within the CTVFC and ideally, other outside organizations.
This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one recipient annually. Hodder’s family, including his daughter Kim Cannon, will select the winner each year.
