The first scholarship was awarded in 1990. Each year the scholarship is awarded to a high school graduate from Caledonia Regional High School who began their education at Riverside Consolidated School. To date, this fund has provided $16,200 in scholarships.
Over the years the fund has grown through investments, memorials (care of the Albert County Funeral Home), donations and the sale of Shepody Loyal (the book printed for the 75th anniversary of Riverside Consolidated School). We have at the present an investment of $18,030. Through this fund we have been able to help graduates further their education. Only the interest on the fund is being awarded each year, which means the fund will be available to help many more in the future!
Anyone looking for more information on the fund or wishing to make a donation, please contact Beulah Morrissey, Gayle Steeves or Margaret Elliott.
