Carleton E. Edwards Scholarship Trust Fund
Carleton E. Edwards was a Selectmen for the Town of Raymond for over 50 years, had 6 terms in the State Legislature, as well as being a life-long resident and dairy farmer. The town officials, through donations of many interested citizens and his family, formed this scholarship fund in his memory recognizing his interest in the education of the youth of Raymond. The annual scholarship is to be given to one student with outstanding credentials and needs, and should be enrolled in a four-year college course. Preference is to be given to a North Raymond student if he or she is as eligible as any others who have applied. A student may receive the scholarship more than one year during his or her college career if he or she remains eligible. The Annual Town Report should include the name of the scholarship, amount, and to whom it was given.
Ruth Day and Anna Collins took an active interest in the youth of Raymond. To perpetuate their ideals of character and scholarship excellence, they left a fund for annual awards to a Raymond resident, graduating from secondary school, who exemplified scholarship and character of the highest order and who wished to continue his or her education in college or technical school.
George E. Wood Memorial Scholarship
The scholarship fund was raised by the many admirers of the late George Wood, who was a well-known selectman, teacher, football coach and musician. As a teacher and coach at the Providence Country Day School, where he taught a major part of his life, he influenced the lives of hundreds of boys. When he retired he moved to his summer home in Raymond and took an active part in the community life. As a selectman he was in close contact with local school activities, in which he took a great deal of interest. It is fitting that a scholarship fund was named to perpetuate the memory of this beloved teacher who devoted the first part of his life to young people and the latter part to the whole community.
This scholarship is to be awarded to a Raymond student who, having shown interest and ability in mathematics, intends to continue studies in college or in a technical or vocational school.
