Founded by mother Mary Gove for Linganore High School graduates.
Candace Gove Kakel graduated from Linganore High School in 1966 and attended the University of Denver where she earned a degree in English and Theater Arts. She taught English at Mt. Hebron High School for many years before she died of cancer in 1988. The Chase Gove Family, led by Mrs. Mary Gove, established The Candace Gove Kakel Memorial Scholarship Fund in memory of their daughter and sister. This Fund supports an annual scholarship for a graduate of Linganore High School, Mrs. Kakel’s alma mater.
