Wakefield Scholars

We are proud that, to date, we have been able to help 373 Wakefield graduates attend college. Since the creation of the Foundation in 1986, we have given a total of $2,053,699 in scholarships and teacher grants. All of those funds were raised through contributions and interest income. Below, organized by decade, are our Wakefield Scholars.
