Frances B. Wolfe

Frances B. Wolfe was an Ashland High School graduate and a 1938 graduate of Ashland College. She served as an elementary school teacher in the Mansfield, Ohio area for most of her life. Her care and concern for children, as well as her value of education, can still be seen today.

Though she lived in Lakeside, Ohio, for the last 23 years of her life, Ms. Wolfe desired to leave a legacy for students in the Ashland community. In her estate, she named ACCF to receive a gift to create a scholarship fund for Ashland High School students. This scholarship, in memory of her parents, is named the Earl and Mary Wolfe Memorial Scholarship in Mathematics. A second gift from her estate was designated for addition to an existing scholarship, previously created by Ms. Wolfe in honor of her sister, Mary Ellen Wolfe.

For perpetuity, Frances Wolfe’s legacy will live on through her two memorial scholarships. It is profound to think of the many students that will benefit from these scholarships.
