The meaning behind the Tom Fletcher Memorial Scholarship
Tom Fletcher Memorial Scholarship
Tom Fletcher was a Churubusco resident, a Turtle Days Board Member as well as a Park Board Member.
He loved his community and enjoyed giving back. Upon his passing in 2010, the Tom Fletcher memorial
scholarship began. It was important for the scholarship recipients to model the characteristics of what
Tom believed were important. The Turtle Days Board selects both a male and female student who have
given back to their community, volunteered in many different aspects and are involved in community
Anyone that knew Tom knew that he loved to play cards. This is where the inspiration came from to
have a Texas Hold ‘Em fundraiser to raise money for his memorial scholarship. The board has continued
to do every year since his passing.
Please join us in supporting a great cause!
