Thomas (Tom) M. Herman was born September 25, 1932, in Edgerton, Ohio, and prior to his retirement and move to South Carolina, was an active member in the Bryan, Ohio community, including the Bryan Area Foundation.
A graduate of Miami University of Ohio, Tom married his college sweetheart, Susan (Sue) Young, and they are the proud parents of five boys, Dr. Craig, Dr. Bruce, Steven, Timothy, and Andrew.
In 1990, Tom and Sue tragically lost their youngest son, Andrew, better known as “the Gerb,” in an automobile accident.
Because of their involvement with the Foundation, they established a scholarship in his memory, the Andrew M. Herman Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Each year two Bryan High School seniors who have demonstrated leadership abilities and participation in school or community activities, including part-time employment, are eligible to receive one of two $2,500 scholarships to their college, university, or technical school of choice.
In honor of Tom’s 90th birthday on September 25th, the Herman family has pledged to match up to $15,000 in total donations received now through December 31, 2022.
If you would like to honor Tom by donating to the Andrew M. Herman Memorial Scholarship Fund, you may do so by mailing a check or making an online donation.
Checks should be mailed to PO Box 651, Bryan, OH 43506. Please note “Tom Herman” in your check memo line or in the dedication box if made online on the Bryan Area Foundation website.
We hope everyone will join us in wishing Tom Herman a happy birthday and in giving back to the community through this scholarship match opportunity!!
