Report of Scholarship - See attached page. - Irene King

  • In the past 2 years the RCAA scholarship could only give $ 500.00. Irene Kingmoved to investigate the number of people that didn't receive the full amount of $ 1,000. and only received $ 500. and to reimburse those people an additional $500.
    • Seconded by Lynn Slade.
    • Discussion.
  • Micky asked the question why only $ 500.00. The scholarship fund was down to $ 1,800. Micky expressed concern that we should continueto give $ 500 at the Fall Commencement until such time that there is adequate principle to generate annually the $1000. Alumni Scholarship.
    • Motion was defeated.
  • Discussion regarding getting professional investors. Scholarship is currently in a short-term note. Bill discussed the possibility of investing now at 5.25%.
  • Discussion on the Charitable Foundation whose founding members were Kay Hoey and Irene King and the Scholarship (originally started back at the 75thReunion by Doug Allen, Pauline Knude, Jane Robinson and Diane Carlton). All the paperwork of separating the two accounts is done by Helen Brandon, the school secretary, and as of this meeting the books were being audited. The outstanding issue to be determined is
    whether the Charitable Foundation Contributions and the Scholarship are being kept separately by Helen or shown together.
