It’s with great sorrow that we share that longtime LRSEF friend Dr. Tom Crawford passed away on Thursday, November 1, 2018.
Dr. Crawford served as Director of the Louisville Region Science Fair, and he was instrumental in bringing the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair to Louisville in 1997. The event attracted six Nobel Laureates for the first time. Because of this success, the Kentucky Science Fair Endowment, Inc., was established to provide partial financial support to all regional fairs and to the state science fair in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
He is also co-founder of the Kentucky State Science and Engineering Fair.
