The Hodge Memorial Endowed Scholarship
For more than 40 years, Thomas R. Hodge educated Franklin College students as professor of chemistry. Through his dedication to teaching and his interest in intercollegiate athletics, he has touched the lives of generations of Franklin College students. To honor the memory of his parents, Professor Hodge has established this scholarship. His father, Edward C. Hodge, served many years as superintendent of high schools in Kirkwood and Elizabeth, Illinois. His mother, Catherine D. Hodge, taught in public schools in Illinois.
