BACKGROUND

The Matt Stahl Scholarship program was established in 2007 by Matt's parents, Marc and Margie Stahl of Maysville, after the sudden death in 2004 of their son while he was a student at Thomas More College.  Matt was an outgoing young man with a variety of interests, as well as a fine student.  It was said of Matt that regardless of where you found him... on the basketball court, on the baseball diamond, or in the classroom... when you found him you found a friend. 

The Program seeks to reward young people who excel in the classroom, in extracurricular activities, and in service to their communities.
