The Thomas & Cynthia Markle Scholarship for Advanced Degree Study will assist students who have earned an undergraduate degree & are seeking further education.

Cindy Markle moved to Glasgow after their marriage & worked in journalism & marketing at the Courier & FMDH. Both have been active in many volunteer community endeavors.
