The Charles E. Cranmer-Liquid Transporters, Inc. Endowed Scholarship Fund was established by Mr. Cranmer thirty years ago to support students of Kentucky's two-year colleges. The scholarships are awarded to children of company employees, excluding those of officers and directors. Recipients, who demonstrate need and continue to make satisfactory progress toward a degree, receive up to six semesters of tuition assistance. Through Mr. Cranmer's foresight and generosity, the endowment has grown and will continue to provide much-needed support for KCTCS students. Liquid Transporters was purchased by Trimac Transportation in 1980.
