Donations to the Randy Rood Memorial Scholarship
Roughly 10 students are selected each year for the Randy Rood Memorial
Scholarship which was designed to provide support to local graduates who
might not otherwise be able to make college a reality. Each student awarded
is eligible to receive $2,500 for up to five years. Some of the past recipients
are now nurses, writers, teachers, mechanics, personal trainers, EMTs
and more. Many of our past recipients make regular donations to the Randy
Rood Memorial Scholarship Fund as a way to say 'thank you'. You
can help us support even more local students through this scholarship
fund. Simply click the DONATE NOW button.
“Your generous support is helping me fulfill a lifelong dream of
going to college. One day I will help future recipients of this scholarship
achieve their goals, just as you have helped me.” ~ Mikaela Hernandez
