Bill Davis
Dec 2020: The Richfield Spartan Foundation recently added this scholarship to its list. These began as 2 awards in 1990 and have grown to 25. Over the past 31 years, the Foundation has consistently supported scholarships and funding for arts and athletic programs. Bill Davis served on the board for all 31 years and as its President for the past 13 years. He wishes to award a senior who has shown “exemplary service” within RHS or in the larger community outside the school. RHS seniors can apply through the Counselors’ office. The Board asks for your contribution through its website at spartanfoundation.com and clicking on Donate in the upper right-hand corner. In this effort, we ask for your ‘exemplary community service.’ Sun Current article.
