Each year REF awards a $1,000 scholarship to one student from each Fairfield High School who plans to enter the field of Education. Member donations make this possible. THANK YOU GENEROUS MEMBERS!!!
(Note: REF donates the scholarship money. The recipients are chosen by the high schools.)
Below are the two "Thank-you" notes which Dick
Dezenzo, chairman of the Scholarship Committee, received from our 2021 REF Scholarship Recipients:
Thank you so much for choosing me as the recipient of the Retired Educators of Fairfield Scholarship. I’ve always wanted to be an Elementary School Teacher. This scholarship will help me
reach that goal.
Ferhada Kojic (-
(2021 Warde REF Scholarship Recipient)
Thank you so much for picking me for your scholarship. I am going to Sr. Michael’s College to study Psychology and hopefully become a
school counselor like my mom.
I had a great 4 years at Ludlowe, playing JV Soccer and tennis my freshman year, then the next 3 years on varsity where I
have made so many memories and friends. Ijust want to thank you again for ending my high school career with something else to celebrate.
