I am pleased to announce this year’s Ralph and Clare Rudolph Scholarship was awarded to Zachary Melvin. Zachary’s mother, Laura Williams, works in the Quality Assurance Department at our facility in North West Arkansas. Zachary will receive $2,000 per year for the next four years as he pursues a degree from The University of Arkansas. Zachary will be graduating from Fayetteville High School this spring.
The scholarship was developed as a way for Mr. Rudolph, the late founder of Rockline, and his wife Clare to give back to the employees who have helped make Rockline successful. Having lived through the Great Depression, the Rudolph’s saw how economic hardship could take away people’s material possessions. The one thing it cannot take away is someone’s education.
The Community Foundation of Fox Valley manages the application and selection process for the scholarship. Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement and community service.
