John A. Polefka Memorial Endowment Fund – Class of 1968

Thank you to Ken (Woody) Woodruff for his matching grant to this program in connection with the 55th Reunion of the Class of 1968.

Thank you for your interest in making a gift to The John A. Polefka Memorial Endowment Fund. The 1968 class of Phoenixville Area High School has created this fund in John’s memory to honor his sacrifice and others who have served. Resulting scholarships will be awarded to deserving and qualifying Phoenixville Area High School students who have expressed a desire to enter the Armed Forces or pursue a career in law enforcement in service to our country and/or communities. In 2021, the decision was made to create an endowed scholarship so this award will continue in perpetuity. To learn more about John and the fund’s mission, please click here.
