It keeps giving


Three Warwick students were awarded $2,175 scholarships each in ceremonies Tuesday at the Warwick School Administration building. The awards were made possible by the Cataract Fire Company No. 2 Scholarship fund managed by the Rhode Island Foundation. The fund was created with the help of volunteer firefighters Richard McGuinn and Otis Wyatt in 1974 using proceeds from the sale of the fire company property, now the Warwick Firefighters Club on Warwick Avenue. Scholarship awards are made to students who demonstrate a financial need, who are below the top 10 percent of their class and have a strong desire to pursue higher education. Scholarship recipients and members of the cataract committee (from left) are Nicholas Bullock, who graduated from Hendricken and plans to attend Providence College to study business; Michael Shields, committee chair; Susanna Mello, a Bay View Academy graduate who plans to attend Salve Regina to study art with a focus on illustration; committee member Ron Caniglia; Noah Spagnolo, a Hendricken grad who plans to attend the University of New England to study dentistry and committee members Stephen Hay and Jenny Velan.
