Ruth and Leonard Minich Scholarship Fund

Ruth A. Thompson Minich and Leonard L. Minich were involved in the agricultural community of La Porte County as they owned a dairy and grain farm.

Ruth and Leonard loved their family, their community and their church. They valued learning. As a part of the “Greatest Generation,” they began their married life with a commitment to each other, a passion for education and learning, and very little money. They were members of many service and church organizations. Ruth served 18 years on the La Porte Community School Board. They improved many lives through their time, talent and treasure.

Ruth and Leonard’s children established this scholarship to honor their parents and continue their parents legacy.
