The Alumni Association established the
Scholarship Foundation in October 1993 and enrolled it as one of
more than 800 "Dollars for Scholars" chapters. The Foundation's
fund is now at $310,000. In 2005 $34,100 in alumni scholarships
were awarded to 46 students. In addition, we also awarded $5000 for
the Plotkin music scholarships to under graduates. The number of
scholarships grows each year as alumni establish family and memorial
scholarships and because generous alumni contribute to the
scholarship general fund. Various classes holding reunions often
donate excess reunion funds for a scholarship, as well.
scholarships are awarded each June at the Senior Awards Night.
Several of the scholarships honor ERHS teachers including Howard
Swan(for choral music); funded by Richard Cameron W'62 the Michael
Harada(English) and Benjamin Friedman(math) awards which are for 4
years; Charles Hamer; Larry Houston; Sonya Most; Gil
Espino(athletics); Kathy Bachand(writing); John Rinaldo(instrumental
music); and Willie Stupin(social studies).
In addition, several alumni are honored
including John D'Orazi S'61; Lynn Holman S'61; Ted Horstman W'38;
Peggy Lenney S'47; Martin Modesti S'50; and Don Samuel S'53 with
scholarships funded by family, friends or ERHS alumni.
The following are family funded scholarships
including the James Beckham Memorial Education Scholarship; The Bua
Family Scholarship; Forsyth/Takagaki Scholarship; Bert and Jean
Fraleigh scholarships(American Foreign Service and Samuel A. Thomson
Memorial); Morreale Family Scholarships; Odell Family Scholarship;
