During a recent fundraising event, Stallmeyer explained the importance and value of this grant. “Having a named endowed scholarship is such an honor but, more importantly, it is a gift that will make a difference in the lives of young men and women for many years to come. I offer a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to everyone who has helped make this possible.”

Stallmeyer is succeeded by David A. Armstrong, J.D., who takes the helm July 1, 2013. Armstrong comes to Thomas More College from Notre Dame College in South Euclid, Ohio where he served as vice president and general counsel and played a vital role in the college’s development and enrollment departments.
