The Bob Gauss Memorial Scholarship


The Emmitsburg Lions Club has established an annual scholarship of $1000 in the memory of charter member Lion Bob Gauss  to be awarded to a high school senior residing in the Emmitsburg Elementary School attendance district and the 21727 zip code.

Bob Gauss was a long time member of the Emmitsburg community and belonged to many civic organizations.

Bob's importance and stature in the eyes of the community was best summed up by Joan Boyle when she said :

"Bob has radiated the basic ideal of Athenian Democracy when the Athenian became a legal citizen by pledging ‘We will transmit this city more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.’ Thank you, Bob, for giving Emmitsburg such a legacy of making it a more beautiful place in which to live. Let us cherish your legacy by continuing its beauty."

—Joan Boyle
