From David Varner, son of Tom Varner:
"On behalf of our family, I am pleased to share we have created a scholarship in Dad's memory, The Tom Varner Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship will be hosted by the Ashland Kiwanis Club and used to recognize deserving student athletes as they continue their studies. It's a fitting tribute, as Dad had both an academic and athletic scholarship to The Ohio State University.
We know he would be proud of the way in which we are choosing to honor him. It encompasses youth, continuing education and builds on the legacy of a wonderful Kiwanian.
Many have asked what they can do or how they can support our family. We would be honored by any donation to fund this scholarship program.
It's humbling to reflect on the impact this will have on future generations. A way for Dad to pay it forward in perpetuity. 💙"
