JRM Scholarship Fund

Joseph Rudolf Marth Memorial Scholarship Fund

Joseph Rudolf MarthThrough memorial donations from Joe’s family and friends, Martha Murphy, spouse of the Late Joseph Rudolf Marth, created the “Joseph Rudolf Marth Memorial Scholarship Fund” in loving memory and to honour our “Funny Guy” Joe (Joey).
Joe was a McMaster University graduate and a very successful Radio Personality under the name of Joey Martin. Joe was an accomplished Voice Actor under the name of the Human Cartoon; his specialty was animation and he enjoyed national and international successes. Joe will be remembered as sharing his wonderful GIFT of LAUGHTER with those he met…..thereby leaving our world a better place!
This award will be presented annually to a student nominated by their peers and/or teachers, graduating from Campbellford District High School, and can be used for post-secondary education or an apprenticeship program. The student(s) nominated will demonstrate Joe’s signature trait of making people laugh, have a huge amount of confidence, and include everyone in sharing the laughter. This student will have contributed to the overall “upbeat and positive atmosphere” of the school community. 
A request for nominations will be communicated to staff and graduating students at Campbellford District High School in early spring of each year. A student and/or teacher may submit a nomination form for more than one fellow GRADUATING student. Self-nominations are not accepted.
