Melvin J. and Alice Gayle Reeder Scholarship

Established on February 11, 2005, on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary, the Melvin J. and Alice Gayle Reeder Scholarship was created by the Reeder children in memory of their parents to assist graduates of Northern York County Senior High School in Dillsburg, PA. The scholarship honors Melvin and Gayle Reeder, whose eight children all graduated from Northern and who, from 1967 to 1988, had at least one child attending school for 21 consecutive years.

This scholarship is a fund of the Dillsburg Area Community Foundation, a regional foundation of TFEC.
