Founded by Roger F. Nicodemus for Frederick County residents, preferably those interested in theater.
Jeffery W. Kight was an active member of the Fredericktowne Players, where he worked backstage rather than as an actor. While those behind the scenes often get less credit than actors and actresses, Jeffrey distinguished himself as a vital part of several theater productions. Mr. Kight was tragically killed in a car accident. Two funds honor his name and assist others interested in theater as he had been. The Jeffrey W. Kight Scholarship Fund, founded by Roger F. Nicodemus to award scholarships to Frederick County residents, particularly those with an interest in theater, and The Fredericktowne Players/Jeffrey W. Kight Scholarship Fund founded by the Fredericktowne Players for students participating in its productions.
