The Joseph Rudolf Marth Memorial Scholarship

As local high school students work towards graduating in June, there is a new and unique opportunity to help a student pay for their post-secondary education.

And, this scholarship is different.  It will be awarded to the Campbellford District High School student who loves to make people laugh and helps create an “upbeat and positive atmosphere” at the school.

The Joseph Rudolf Marth Memorial Scholarship is accepting nominations from student peers and teachers.  The nomination forms are available at CDHS and the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation.

Joe Marth was a local entrepreneur and a celebrity radio host under the name of Joey Martin. He was also an accomplished voice actor with a specialty in animated films.

To celebrate the launch of the scholarship, the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation is partnering with the Aron Theatre Co-op and Campbellford schools to premiere the animated comedy film “The Seventh Dwarf”.

“In the movie, Joe voices the part of Cooky, the pleasantly plump dwarf who is a baker and loves food,” said Martha Murphy, the Executive Director of the Community Foundation, and Joe’s widow.  “Joe was a foodie and he really enjoyed voicing the part.”

Local schools will be attending a number of matinees at the Aron Theatre, and on Thursday March 10 at 7:30 p.m. and Friday March 11 at 2:00 p.m. there will be two shows open to the public.

Mark White, the President of the Aron Theatre said, “We are so pleased to recognize local talent and provide this community-owned theatre to celebrate the launch of the scholarship.  All net proceeds from ticket sales will go towards the scholarship endowment fund managed by the Community Foundation.”

There is a special ticket price for the movie of $5 per person, to make it affordable for all to attend.
