Carol Darnell Memorial Scholarship
Carol Darnell was the wife of retired chemistry and religion teacher Tom Darnell, who taught at Elder from 1967-2003. Carol loved the Elder community and was highly involved with various events, clubs, and activities at Elder such as the annual Elderama auction, the Christmas Food and Toy Drive, and the Elder Moms' Club. She was instrumental in starting up Elder's Mom Prom, which is still a favorite event for both the moms and their sons. Carol was a kind, loving woman, whose smile was contagious and laugh is unforgettable. Carol and Tom raised four children - sons Tim '91 and Scott '98 and daughters Jenny and Becky. Carol lost her fight with pancreatic cancer in 1997, but her spirit lives on at Elder through this scholarship that her family and friends established in her memory in 1999.
