The Richard B. Dunne, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund
(formerly "The New North Kingstown High School Scholarship Fund") was formed
in 2001 to celebrate the opening of the new North Kingstown High School
building. The fund was renamed in
2008 to honor Richard Dunne, a longtime teacher at the high school
who was instrumental in creating and fundraising for the
scholarship. Dunne died unexpectedly in August 2007.
Since its establishment, the fund has
distributed 80 scholarships valued
at almost $78,750
to members of the NKHS
graduating class. Richard always believed that education comes in all shapes
and sizes. Keeping with this vision,
we award $1,000 scholarships to students attending 4-year colleges,
2-year colleges and vocational/technical schools.
Our annual photo contest
primary fundraising event for the
contributions and vehicle donations of all
types are also gratefully accepted.
We love them all!
