At Fischer & Frichtel, we are truly committed to improving the quality of life throughout the metropolitan area, so we devote considerable time, effort, and funding to worthy civic and charitable endeavors. Over the years, we have donated our time and organized fundraising efforts for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Habitat for Humanity, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys Hope, Youth In Need, St. Joseph’s Institute for the Deaf, the Ronald McDonald House, the March of Dimes Missouri Chapter, and Folds of Honor St. Louis. In 2016, we began to support the efforts of the March of Dimes Missouri Chapter. The March of Dimes is a remarkable organization that funds scientific research to prevent premature birth, birth defects and infant loss. Each year since then, Fischer & Frichtel has been a contributing sponsor of the March for Babies, which is the nation’s oldest fundraising walk.
It is a great pleasure to honor our founders by announcing the recipients of the 2022 John J. & Jean Fischer Scholarship award and the Jacqueline Iffrig Scholarship Award. The recipients were selected on the basis of their academic rank, extracurricular activities, leadership potential, character references and other pertinent factors. Scholarships are in the amount of $2,500 each.
Recipient of the John J. & Jean Fischer Scholarship Award from Fischer & Frichtel Custom Homes, LLC: Jonah Christopher Aholt
Jonah is the son of Chris Aholt, Fischer & Frichtel Project Manager. He graduated from Troy Buchanan High School and has been accepted for admission to the University of Arkansas with a major in Pre-Health: Exercise Science. The scholarship selection committee was particularly impressed by his academic, sports and club achievements. He participated on his school’s Varsity basketball team, as well as in FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes). During his junior year, he injured his knee playing basketball which required surgery and eight months of intense therapy. This experience is what inspired him to study physical therapy. Jonah’s hobbies include hiking, camping and attending Cardinals and Blues games.
Recipient of the Jacqueline Iffrig Scholarship Award from Fischer & Frichtel Carpentry Specialties, Inc.: Emma Brez
Emma is the daughter of Matt Brez, an employee of Fischer & Frichtel Carpentry Specialties. She graduated from New Haven High School, and has been accepted for admission to East Central College with a major in Nursing. The scholarship selection committee was impressed by her academic, sports and club achievements. She played volleyball for four years, was involved in FCCLA for four years, and was inducted into the National Honor Society her senior year. She loves spending time with her family and friends, shopping, fishing and traveling.
Please join us in wishing Jonah and Emma much success in their education and future career path.
For the second year in a row, Fischer & Frichtel Homes is donating $1,000 for every home sold from Memorial Day through the 4th of July to the Folds of Honor-St. Louis Chapter. And, we are rounding up our donation to $20,000! These contributions help support the Folds of Honor’s mission to provide educational scholarships and support for the spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Fischer & Frichtel is a 5-star partner of St. Louis Chapter, which is the highest level of sponsorship. “We will forever be grateful to our service members who have sacrificed so much for our freedom,” said John Fischer, president of Fischer & Frichtel. “We proudly stand behind Folds of Honor to educate the legacy of these brave men and women. We thank our customers for their business which enables us to support this worthy cause.”
Fischer & Frichtel is continuing its support of the March of Dimes as a Gold Sponsor of the 2022 March for Babies, which took place on Saturday, June 04. Again this year, the March for Babies referred to the event as “A Mother of a Movement™” to stress how the March of Dimes is making a visible difference in our community, now and for generations to come.
