Harry and Marge Walbridge Scholarship established

ROSCOMMON – The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) established the Harry and Marjorie Walbridge Scholarship Fund to assist in higher education for a Roscommon County student.

Harry moved to the Roscommon area in 1973 and was a devoted member of many organizations including the Masonic Lodge, Roscommon Higgins Lake Lions Club, and Rotary Club of Roscommon. He also served as the counselor for the Gerrish-Higgins Schools from 1973 to 1987.

Marge was a very active member of the Zonta Club of Roscommon. They were devout members of First Congregational Church. Sadly, Harry passed away in November 2016, and Marge in March 2020.

Harry and Marge were passionate about continuing education and wished to give back to the community that they loved so much. The RCCF wished to recognize their generosity over the years by establishing the Harry and Marjorie Walbridge Scholarship Fund. This fund is an open scholarship that is awarded to a student from Roscommon Area Public Schools, Houghton Lake Community Schools, and Charlton Heston Academy who wishes to continue their education. The student must have a minimum grade point average of 2.25 and attend an accredited college, university, community college, or trade/technical/vocational school.
