John and Edith Richards Memorial Scholarship Endowment
The Richards were successful business people who owned the former Richards Tire Company on East Market Street in Wabash. They established a generous scholarship trust in 1965, to give back to their community by assisting worthy young residents of Wabash County who will be pursuing post-secondary career training or an academic degree at an accredited educational institution. Recipients are selected on the basis of a desire to continue an education beyond high school and an ability to succeed in education.
