Scott & Hoffnagle 

Scholarship Program - 2023

Commonwealth Fire Protection Company a 100% Employee-Owned company (CFPC) is pleased to provide you with information regarding the (Stephen) Scott & (Paul) Hoffnagle Scholarship Fund (formally known as the Stephen E. Scott Scholarship Fund). The SES & PWH Scholarship Fund was originally established in 2015 to honor the past President of CFPC, Stephen E. Scott and revised in 2018 to honor past CEO, Paul W. Hoffnagle. CFPC is a fire sprinkler contractor located in Leola, PA and Wilmington, De. serving the Mid-Atlantic area with design, fabrication, installation, service and inspection of automatic fire sprinkler systems.  

Steve Scott was the founding owner and President of Commonwealth Fire Protection. He was our leader, our mentor and most importantly, our friend! Steve was wise beyond his years. He was honorable and always did “it” right! Regardless of the situation, he always took “the high road” and did what was necessary to maintain a relationship, whether it be business or personal. He was a person of high integrity. Steve surrounded himself with like-minded people and built our company through hard work and dedication. We celebrated our 40th year of business in 2017.

Paul W. Hoffnagle was one of those like minded people who surrounded Steve. Paul’s integrity and ethics lead him to live his life to the fullest. Paul’s impact on everyone he met was immeasurable! After the loss of Steve, Paul continued his dedication to the CFPC family and he lead with honor. There is an extremely large hole missing in the lives of those who knew Steve and Paul, but it is the ultimate goal of CFPC to honor them both with the glory they deserve.  

Steve and Paul both had the same love of the outdoors and the shooting sports. They both had a thorough love of fly fishing and hunting. Steve always had an English Setter at his side chasing grouse and pheasants and Paul always had his labs chasing pheasants, ducks and geese. The obvious method of fund raising was to hold an annual Sporting Clays Shoot. In the first five years CFPC has hosted the event, over $125,000 has been raised for scholarships for students involved in furthering their education. In 2017 we provided $10,000.00 in scholarships. In 2018 and 2019 we increased the awards to $15,000 in scholarships and in 2020 we increased to $20,000. Our 2020 fund raising event set records in attendance and funds raised. 2021 we will be awarding $32,500 in scholarships! Information is available on our web site
