The Spirit of Kishacoquillas Scholarship Fund
Kishacoquillas was a widely known chief of the Shawnee Indians of Mifflin County, PA around 1750. He was held in high regard by early colonial officials in the area because of his successful efforts in keeping the Shawnee neutral during the beginning of the French and Indian War. A beautiful valley and the creek that runs its length bear the name of Kishacoquillas. From 1958 through 1988, students in grades 7 - 12, living in the townships of Armagh, Brown, Union, and Menno attended Kishacoquillas Junior/Senior High School, affectionately known as "Kish." This scholarship fund will be offered annually to students who are graduating seniors at Mifflin County High School, have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and are currently living in Armaugh, Brown, Union, or Menno townships. Applicants must be pursuing a bachelors or associates degree at an accredited university, college, or technical/trade school. Eligible recipients must exemplify the spirit of Kishacoquillas through community service, volunteerism, environmental protection, or other acts of kindness. The image associated with this fund is Anne Kepler Fisher's painting, which was completed in 1966 and is now displayed in the Mifflin County Courthouse in Lewistown, PA.
