Christopher W. Ausherman Scholarship Fund

Founded by his family, with preference for those studying construction management, engineering, architecture or pursuing a career in the building trades.

Christopher W. Ausherman was born on March 23, 1976, the son of Marvin E. Ausherman and Nancy Ramsburg O’Brien (formerly Ausherman). Raised in Frederick, he graduated from Governor Thomas Johnson High School in 1994. At the completion of his fourth year at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, Christopher was involved in a tragic motorcycle accident in June 1998. He had just started his own business called Ausherman Custom Contracting. In memory of his dream of becoming a builder, Christopher’s family established The Christopher W. Ausherman Scholarship Fund. The Fund awards scholarships to graduating seniors in Frederick County, with preference given to graduates of Governor Thomas Johnson High School, particularly those students pursuing careers in the building trades, construction management, engineering, or a related field.
