The Myron Fishel Scholarship Fund was created by Dr. Waite Phillip Fishel, a former chemistry professor at Vanderbilt University, in 1974 to honor the memory of his only son, Myron, who was killed in action during World War II. The Myron Fishel Scholarship Fund joined the Guernsey County Foundation’s Family of Funds at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio (FAO) in late 2016.

Guernsey County students attending or planning to attend an accredited post-secondary institution in Ohio are invited to apply for the Myron Fishel Scholarship.
