WAKEFIELD - The Scholarship Foundation of Wakefield, Inc. is pleased to announce the establishment of the WHS Class of 1961 Fund. This fund was established by Class of 1961 alumni who formed a committee in April 2018 to create the scholarship.
According to the committee, the goal of the scholarship is to “help students in our community, who qualify, and are selected by TSF of Wakefield, to make the cost of higher education a little more affordable.”
“Our class feels this is our way of saying 'Thank You' to the many teachers, coaches, classmates and members of the Wakefield community who helped to guide us through those formative years,” a spokesperson noted.
The WHS Class of 1961 Fund is an accumulating fund of The Scholarship Foundation of Wakefield. Once it reaches permanency, this scholarship will be awarded in the class' name through the earnings of the Fund. Tax deductible donations to the WHS Class of 1961 Fund can be made to TSF of Wakefield, Inc., P.O. Box 321, Wakefield, MA 01880. The name of the fund should be written on the check. Online donations can be made by visiting the TSF website at tsfofwakefield.org.
