Donations to the Randy Rood Memorial Scholarship

Seniors graduating from The Dalles, Dufur, Sherman County and South Wasco County high schools are selected each year for the Randy Rood Memorial Scholarship which was designed to provide support to local graduates who might not otherwise be able to make college a reality. Each student awarded is eligible to receive $2,500 for up to five years. Some of the past recipients are now nurses, writers, teachers, mechanics, personal trainers, EMTs and more. Many of our past recipients make regular donations to the Randy Rood Memorial Scholarship Fund as a way to say ‘thank you’. You can help us support even more local students through this scholarship fund. Simply click the DONATE NOW button.
