The Ripley County Community Foundation is proud to announce the creation of The Triplett Family Scholarship. In 1919, the Triplett family established roots in Osgood, Indiana, when G.A. and Jessie Triplett purchased the Dopp drug store. It was the family’s wish to continue their legacy through the Triplett Family Scholarship, which will be available beginning in 2021.
The scholarship will be distributed annually at $1,500 to a student who is accepted to a two- or four-year accredited institute of higher learning, including technical schools. Applicants must be a graduating senior from Jac-Cen-Del High School; be planning a career or be enrolled in a technical skill or a degree in an accredited STEM, educational, agricultural or language program; receive 2 letters of recommendation, one from a school administrator or teacher and the other from a coach, adult mentor, or employer; and submit a 200 to 300 word essay on his or her past involvement within their community, church, school, and other outside activities through participation and volunteerism.
