Larry F. Thompson Memorial Scholarship Fund

Presented by the West Grove-Avondale Rotary and the Oxford Arts Alliance


The Larry F. Thompson Scholarship Fund provides individual need-based scholarships to music students at the Oxford Arts Alliance Academy of Music.

Larry F. Thompson (1942-2020) was a beloved member of the West Grove-Avondale Rotary and a music student of the Oxford Arts Alliance. In Memorium, we honor Larry's life and the song he always had in his heart through passing the torch and passion for music onto the next generation. This scholarship ensures that no student in Oxford, PA, will be denied access to a musical education due to their inability to pay or afford an instrument.
