Ralph Lockerbie Goshen Kiwanis Scholarship

Ralph at Olympia Candy Kitchen

The Ralph G. Lockerbie Goshen Kiwanis Scholarship was established by Mrs. Rita C. Lockerbie on behalf of her beloved husband, Ralph G. Lockerbie. He moved to Goshen with his parents at the age of three. His roots took hold at an early age and would stay with him as he faithfully served the Goshen community for more than 60 years. One of Ralph’s many commitments was his 26 year-long involvement with the Goshen Noon Kiwanis, serving as its president and the voice of the county fair parade, which the club organizes. Ralph also volunteered for more than 25 years at the Goshen relays and sectionals, serving as head timer. Ralph and Rita’s strong belief was that all children should be afforded the chance to pursue higher education. It is with this goal in mind that Rita established this scholarship in his honor, to assist students of Goshen High School who are Key Club members in pursuing a formal education. Students with a strong emphasis on community volunteerism will be given special consideration.
