Johnathan Tschaar Memorial Scholarship

Johnathan Wesley Tschaar was an optimistic young man who was actively involved in high school and the community. Some of his particularly outstanding achievements lie in the arena of agriculture. John was a member of the Taylor County 4-H Club and the Abilene High School Future Farmers of America chapter. He was particularly interested in exhibiting market lambs at local and regional stock shows. In 1995, Johnathan showed the Grand Champion Medium Wool at the Taylor County Livestock Show. Johnathan also helped his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Tschaar and brother Matt, in various capacities at the family farm, and was a member of the Brookhollow Christian Church. In a society of few leaders and many followers, Johnathan displayed leadership through his activities and involvement. His memory will live on through the Johnathan Wesley Tschaar Memorial Scholarship.
