The East Greenwich Rotary Scholarship Fund has announced the establishment of an EG High School scholarship in memory of Bob Houghtaling and in honor of his 40+ years of service to the youth and adults of East Greenwich.  Rotary will match (up to $10,000) donations received from the community. According to board president David Iannuccilli, “Our intention is to establish an endowed scholarship of at least $1,000 annually. Bob, a former Rotarian and frequent speaker at our meetings, was a hero to this town. He didn’t wear a cape, couldn’t fly and didn’t have X-ray vision, but we can’t begin to imagine the countless citizens he has impacted with his insightful wisdom, compassion and counsel.”  

Donations are gratefully accepted to:

East Greenwich Rotary Scholarship Fund
P.O. Box 222
East Greenwich, RI  02818
