First Men In Scholarships – The Original Six

There were six men in Harmel Academy’s original graduating class. After they had completed their first year at Harmel, they were asked to share one piece of advice to all future Harmel students. These Original Six Principles have since hung on the walls of Harmel’s dorms and laboratories.

Thanks to some generous friends, this year, we were able to offer a full slate of scholarships named after these men and their advice: The “First Men In” Scholarships. 

(Quick commercial break: we could sure use the generosity of more friends to support these fellas. Please consider a year end gift gift today !)
