Fund Story

Arlo Westphal was a beloved Assistant Principal at La Porte High School for 20 years, and served 15 years before that as a much respected civics teacher and counselor. Jayne Westphal worked 30 years in the La Porte School System teaching elementary music and was also universally admired for her dedication and enthusiasm. Both Mr. and Mrs. Westphal demonstrated great civic involvement and presence in the community. The Arlo & Jayne Westphal Memorial Scholarship was started to help graduating La Porte High School seniors who demonstrate talent and promise in music and/or theater plus a commitment to public, governmental and community service.
