The fund was established in 1999 in memory of Cardington businessman, John M. Stone, by his wife, Bertha A. Stone, and daughter, Ella J. Wertz. Born in Kenton, Ohio in 1902, Mr. Stone graduated from Kenton High School and the College of Pharmacy at Ohio Northern University. After working at pharmacies in Tiffin and Newark, Ohio, he and his wife purchased Stone's Drug Store in Cardington in 1936 and operated it until 1984. Mr. Stone was active in many civic and community organizations throughout his life including the Rotary Club of Cardington, Cardington Masonic Lodge, First United Methodist Church, and Morrow County Hospital. He also served as treasurer of the Village of Cardington, and director of Citizen's Bank in Cardington and First National Bank in Mt. Gilead. During his many years as a businessman, Mr. Stone inspired numerous high school students who worked for him by his example of hard work and involvement in the community. Mr. Stone expressed his belief that many students are overlooked for scholarships that do not have an "A" average, even though they show consistency in schoolwork and reflect good community citizenship. This fund will be used to provide an annual scholarship to a graduating senior from Cardington-Lincoln High School (Ohio) who is pursuing a college education.
This scholarship was established by Terrence Larrimer to honor his grandfather, Thomas Larrimer (1879-1915), and his father, Richard Larrimer (1903-1987).

Through this scholarship Terrence wishes to recognize his father's commitment to education and by focusing the scholarship on science and engineering, to emphasize the importance of these disciplines in our nation's future.
