"MEET OUR DONORS" - Thomas D. Sauppe was born in Toledo on March 9, 1929. Tom earned a degree in art education from BGSU in 1953. He served as an Army Lieutenant from 1954-1956, stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs. Following his military service, Tom taught Art at Bryan City Schools for 33 years. His specialty was air-brush painting.
Tom along with Grace Carr, supervisor of the Bryan School cafeteria, collaborated in establishing the Association for Recognizing Talented Students (ARTS). The dual pupose of the group is to foster each member's knowledge and appreciation of art, and to award a scholarship to a Bryan senior who plans to follow an arts related career in college.
In 2016, Tom passed away at the age of 87. Future generations of artists will benefit from the generosity of the ARTS organization in memory of Thomas D. Sauppe. ... See MoreSee Less
