by a Broadmead resident

Tom Koch and his three older siblings were raised in bucolic Strasburg, PA. While in high school, Tom felt limited by this environment and wanted to be the first in his family to go to college. His mother helped counter his father’s doubts, and Tom enrolled at nearby Lebanon Valley College in Annville. Menial jobs at school augmented the funds provided from home. Tom continued his high school interest in chemistry and did well in Lebanon Valley’s strong program, earning a B.S. in the subject. Thus launched, Tom was admitted to the graduate chemistry program at University of Maryland, College Park. He also married his girlfriend, Linda Bard.
